As a statewide cross-sector network and trust-based forum, Hawai’i Green Growth members jointly set priorities for collaborative action to advance the Aloha+ Challenge. Hawai’i Green Growth convenes three Working Groups to advance the network’s 2018-2020 strategy:
Policy and Legislation Working Group
The Policy & Legislation Working Group supports coordination on public-private policy priorities across economic, social, and environmental sectors to implement the Aloha+ SDGs. The Group engages in policy setting and coordination at the state, county, and federal levels.

Local Global Next Generation Working Group
The Local-Global Working Group focuses on building pathways to cultivate next generation local and global leadership on sustainability solutions grounded in mālama ‘āina. In 2020, the Working Group is focusing on sharing scalable island solutions globally and building Hawai‘i’s profile as an international leader on sustainability solutions grounded in systems-thinking and traditional knowledge; integrating sustainability across the education system and curriculum to support lifelong learning through Hawai‘i’s aloha ‘āina approach reflected in the Aloha+ Challenge and global SDG frameworks; and build local-global next generation educational, policy and leadership pathways for Hawai‘i’s keiki and across generations.

Dashboard & Measures Working Group
The Measures Working Group led a multi-year stakeholder-driven process to develop the Aloha+ Dashboard and identify statewide indicators to track progress, provide accountability and ensure transparency on Hawai‘i’s economic, social, and environmental priorities. The Working Group continues to update metrics with public and private stakeholders, and is developing innovative mechanisms for both community-driven data and policy tools for decision-makers.
