Most recently, Nainoa led the Mālama Honua (Care for Our Earth) Worldwide Voyage, aimed at “bridging traditional and new technologies to live sustainably, while sharing, learning, creating global relationships, and discovering the wonders of this precious place we all call home.” Nainoa Thompson will speak at the 7th Annual Stephen H. Schneider Memorial Lecture on his experience as a Pwo navigator and efforts to better care for our shared planet.
