Environmentalist Anthony Aalto Argues in Favor of HART’s Positive Impact in Public Forum Nov. 27 at UH Law School

November 23, 2012

Foreign correspondent and environmental activist Anthony Aalto will suggest that the HART rail project could actually help protect O‘ahu’s environment on Tuesday, November 27, from noon to 1:15 p.m. in the Moot Court Room at the William S. Richardson School of Law on the University of Hawai‘i campus.

Aalto’s presentation – “To Keep the Country, Country … Make the City More City” – will look at the Honolulu rail project in a new light. Aalto is chair of the Sierra Club O‘ahu Group and he has also served as a foreign correspondent for a wide number of media outlets including The Guardian, The Economist, and the BBC.

Most recently he was Pacific Rim Correspondent for Expresso of Portugal. He is currently filming a TV series for Oceanic Time Warner, to be called “My Green Hale – How I built the Greenest House in Hawai‘i.”

Aalto’s presentation is the final offering of the semester in a Colloquium series sponsored by the Law School’s Environmental Law Program, headed by ELP Interim Director David Forman, with the assistance of ELP Research Associates Onaona Thoene, Teri Wright, Shae Kamaka‘ala and Kevin Richardson.

Light refreshments will be provided starting at 11:45 a.m. Please RSVP to elp@hawaii.edu.
