HPU’s Green Campus Project kicked off March 9 on upper Fort Street Mall, its pioneer project a recycling program inaugurated by Proud to be Pinoy, the Filipiono student organization at HPU. The event was followed at 8 p.m. by a “Movie on the Mall” screening of former Vice President Al Gore’s Academy-Award-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth, presented by HPU in collaboration with the Honolulu Culture and Arts District, the Fort Street Business Improvement District, and Paradise Cinema.

The Green Campus Project event began with entertainment, a preface to the club’s initiative to provide and maintain HI-5 recycling bins in campus buildings. The event featured environmentally themed games, activities, and exhibits, as well as three local Filipino entertainers: Kristian Lei, international stage performer and CEO of Honolulu Broadway Babies; Randy Valencia of the Night Shade Band; and HPU travel industry management senior Joey Monforte. Joni B. Redick, president and founder of Filipino American Multi Ethnic Society (FAMES), served as the emcee, and HPU assistant professor of management Michelle Alarcon-Catt, director of the Green Campus project, hosted the event.

In the film, which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary, Gore asks audiences to act “boldly, quickly, and wisely” in the fight to save the environment from global climate change.
