The Hawai‘i Sustainability Summit 2024 – presented by Outrigger Hospitality Group – will honor grassroots, nonprofit and business entities who have made contributions to a resilient Hawai‘i in a free to the public community celebration on May 3.

This gathering brings together leaders in innovation and sustainability across all sectors, coupled with family-friendly activities and live music performances by Grammy-nominated producer and singer-songwriter Kimié Miner and Haku Collective.

The public is invited to register for this free event at the Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa Hawai‘i Lawn from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.


In addition to live music, attendees will enjoy local food from several of Hawai‘i’s culinary standouts curated by nonprofit Chef Hui. The lineup includes Hawai‘i Island-based chef Dayne Tanabe of DYNE, chef Ernie Gray Jr. of Poke Market, chef Cherub Silverstein of Sweet Cane Cafe and chef Mark Molina and chef Deanna Marks of Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa.

Beverages will be provided by Kona Brewing Hawai‘i and Shaka Tea. Guests will also receive announcements and prize giveaways from sustainability partners and small local organizations such as Hawai‘i ‘Ulu Cooperative, Terraformation Hawai‘i and FreediveSafe! Hawai‘i.

“This celebration will be a capstone event championing the collective efforts and transformative conversations that come out of the Hawai‘i Sustainability Summit,” said Mayor Mitch Roth. “I am proud to welcome the community at large to this event and share what I know to be the most significant outcome: An increased motivation to provide future generations the opportunity to thrive here in their island home.”


This year’s summit theme, “Celebrating You, Shaping Our Future, Sustaining Hawai‘i Together,” underscores the state’s commitment to maintaining collaborative efforts across six crucial domains: Green Workforce and Education; Natural Resource Management; Local Food; Clean Energy Transformation; Solid Waste Reduction; and Smart Sustainable Communities. Through pre-summit workshops and the county’s inaugural Youth Congress and the public celebration, will come actionable steps and lasting solutions for these topics and more.
