1st Annual “STUDENT SYMPOSIUM in Honolulu”


The 26th Annual HONOLULU FESTIVAL released “STUDENT SYMPOSIUM in Honolulu” for March 7th to be held at Hawaii Convention Center.
Honolulu Festival will hold a symposium for youths from the Pacific Rim, to exchange thoughts of their studies with other global minded youths and in hope to present ideas for the future generation. Honolulu Festival is well known for its stage performances and booth activities. For the 26th Honolulu Festival, we will take a step further in providing a space for youth groups to present their studies, research, culture, and ideas. Students will have the opportunity to engage in discussion around these topics and share different perspectives. Global minded youth will be the next generation that will be responsible for the future. This symposium will help create global minded students by bringing them together, sharing their thoughts and ideas to develop a better future.
The presentation topics are free choice. However, having a topic related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS: consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets) is encouraged. (SDGS site: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdgs)
