Hawai‘i State Senate
Senate Legislative Program
Hawai'i is recognized as a global leader in addressing sustainability and climate change challenges, building on a history of systems-thinking and traditional knowledge. These 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals will reinforce the efforts of the Senate to build a more resilient future for Hawai'i.
- Senator J. Kalani English
We, the Hawai'i State Senate are dedicated to the protection Global Goals and sustainability of our people, communities, natural resources, and economic prosperity. By enacting the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into state law, we can achieve this. Implementation of these goals at the state level through the Aloha+ Challenge, a local sustainability framework, will significantly improve the quality of life for future generations.
The legislation that the Hawai’i Senate enacts to attain the 17 Sustainable Development Goals will enable Hawai’i to join local, national and global partnerships.
It is the Hawai‘i State Senate’s sincere hope that we can work collaboratively with the House of Representatives, the Governor, and the Judiciary to achieve all the goals outlined in this Program.
The Hawai'i State Senate will focus on a local platform to implement the 17
Sustainable Development Goals during the 2018 Legislative Session
