Empowered: Transportation and Mobility

Empowered Hawaii

The quarantine brought a rare sight to Hawai‘i: empty roadways. With most cars parked at home, the quiet and openness of typically crowded streets was palpable.

But what would happen if we took a more human and pedestrian-centered approach to our public areas? What could we do to decrease the need for driving altogether? On Hawaii’s journey to 100% clean energy, it is time to reimagine transportation and mobility.
