The Saturday event will feature musical entertainment by the Big Island Underground, featuring Pō & the 4fathers, and Grant Ka‘ua‘a of the Kuahiwis and Mixjah. There will be activities, demonstrations and exhibits about Polynesian voyaging by the Polynesian Voyaging Society; hydroponics for home gardeners; compost tea brewing; mushroom growing; vermicomposting and more. There will also be a plant giveaway, environment-related movies, and locally grown or produced food and drinks.

Both days are free and open to the public.

Earth Fair film festival promotion with Global Hope and Knowledge in Motion.

Click to Download Film Festival InformationKnowledge in Motion (KIM) would like to invite you to enjoy live music, food and film every Thursday in April (3, 10, 17 & 24) at University of Hawaii Hilo Campus UCB 100 from 6-9pm. Films start at 7pm.

This is an amazing film screening series whose aim is to bring the community together, promote malama ʻāina, and create future konohiki as well as educate and inspire people to take environmental action in their communities. We want the series to offer a place for like-minded people in different communities to come together and take the strength of their common goals and join forces to share their passionate message for environmental stewardship.

We love to work with environmental conscious groups and people across the state to outreach into communities and bring together a diverse audience. The goal is to use film to inspire activism. We hope to use the series to increase a better community understanding of the connection we share with the planet and our roles as stewards to keep it healthy for the next hundred generations.

We look forward to seeing you!
