There is a natural synergy between Design Thinking Hawaii and Sustainable Hawaii Youth Leadership Initiative.  SHYLI embodies the principles of Design Thinking.  SHYLI youth possess the “beginner’s mind” and “out-of-the-box” thinking that DT teaches adults.  They exude the empathy and most importantly, they are taking the initiative to envision projects and engage people.  The Design Sustainable Hawaii Forum could be a differentiator and catalyst.    -  Ian Kitajima, Oceanit
