Join Blue Planet Foundation on Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM for the Blue Line Project—a locally powered movement to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change.
On April 21, 2018, thousands of students and community members will join Blue Planet Foundation in drawing “blue lines” in chalk to mark the areas in their communities that will be impacted by a one-meter rise in sea level. We hope that a visual representation of this water line will inspire students and residents to take action and reduce our vulnerability to climate change impacts.
In some areas, communities are facing permanent displacement of their homes, businesses, and treasured places like parks, schools, and community centers. Recent studies suggest that Hawaii could see a one-meter rise in sea level as early as the second half of the century if we continue our unsustainable reliance on fossil fuels for our electricity and transportation needs.
Together, we can show the world that Hawaii is concerned about the future of the islands we call home and is committed to taking action on climate.
Be a part of the Blue Line Project movement by registering to participate in your community or volunteering at the event.
