The COVID-19 pandemic has caused havoc in our lives and turned our world upside down. We are faced with high unemployment, business closures, and a dramatic rise in public health and safety problems.
As a community, we need to find a new direction and initiatives to reshape and enrich our quality of life.
Overdependence on the visitor industry is no longer a viable option. COVID-19 hit this industry so hard it may never be the same, and neither will we. A survey of Hawaii residents was recently conducted to solicit ideas on what Maui County’s “New Normal” should look like. We received promising suggestions and comments.
We are now casting a wider net to harness ideas from the minds of our youth. Help us search for the right way: imi pono.
