Joshua Noga has been added to the Sierra Club of Hawai’i’s staff as its Conservation Program Coordinator.

In his role, Noga will focus on community organizing as part of SCH’s effort to end climate change and secure a healthy future for Hawai’i.

Noga was born and raised on Oahu as a city kid without much exposure to the natural environment. When he joined the High School Hikers program at Central Intermediate, Noga developed an appreciation for the natural environment.

Now, Noga is a father, a farmer, and an accomplished community organizer who has worked with many organizations and individuals to work in opposition to the “Envision Laia” subdivision that was once proposed for the rural community of Malaekahana. In 2014, the Honolulu Planning Commission unanimously supported removing the project from the community development plan.

As a gradauate of Farrington High School, the University of San Diego, and Argosy University, Nago enjoys hands-on community improvement efforts.
