The beaches were empty. So were the hotels. So were the work schedules for many of the 200,000+ individuals whose jobs were tied in with the visitor industry here in our islands. This pandemic has afforded us the opportunity to critically look at our reliance on tourism. As the number of new COVID-19 cases in Hawai’i dwindles and the state prepares to re-open, how will tourism look in the second half of 2020 and beyond?  Are we ready for people to visit us again? What if no one comes?


Come and share your thoughts and ideas and join our conversation. *14-day home quarantine not required*


Optional reading prior to our conversation: Lack of Clear Plan to Replace Touraisn Leaves Hawaiiʻs Economic Future in Doubt


NOTE: For the past three years, the Try Think team at HIHumanities has been inviting you to engage in conversation in an effort to strengthen our sense of community. We have enjoyed conversations challenging our individual positions on houselessness, conversations about reimagining incarceration, and conversations questioning truth and vulnerability and forgiveness. The rules to the conversation are always the same; everyone is welcome and everyone has a voice that should be heard and considered.
