Currents or types of presentations

'Ohana/Hale:  Family strengthening practices from individual to group.
In this current, we are looking for abstracts that promote the wellbeing with individuals and/or groups in Hawai?i and the Pacific region (micro-level). We are particularly interested in practices that inform intervention and research, as well as practices that look at culture and spirituality as part of the process.

Kauhale:  Community health, economics, education and other areas.
In this current, we are looking for abstracts that enhance the health and wellbeing of Pacific communities (mezzo-level).  We are particularly interested in topics like community engagement; indigenous community practices; integrative models; and innovative approaches to education.

Ea: Self-determination through policy, governance, advocacy, legislation.
In this current, we are looking for abstracts that prioritize our island communities in a macro-level way. We are particularly interested in legislative/policy and research, advocacy projects, and large-scale collaborations. This includes governance issues such as sovereignty and decolonization.

Honua:  Environmental justice, climate change, food security, and ?aina-based learning.
In this current we are looking for abstracts that address our unique geography and environment in the Pacific. We are particularly interested in topics like sustainability, responsible stewardship, and our relationship to the natural world.

Authors’ affiliation and titles are not included.
