Fellowship Dates: Aug. 30 – Sep. 4 2016

The Oceanic Peace Revolution Fellowship, entitled “Peace In + Peace Out = Sustainable World Peace”, will bring together a group of young people from all Oceanian countries who are interested in learning and exploring self-development as a primary means to make this world a better place to live. This retreat aims to promote a culture of peace, peace education, conflict prevention and youth empowerment through the primary means of self-development and meditation.

We live in a world which is often chaotic, stressful and where many people live their lives in situations which are out of their control. By developing personal skills, people can learn to be less reactive to emotions, stress, and challenging external environments and instead become proactive towards real and meaningful world change.

I am taking a class at San Jose State University this summer that is about immigration.  There will be teachers from all over the United States that will be there.  Specifically, we are going to write a short play about immigrants to our area of the United States.  We are each hoping to bring back our play to use drama to enlighten our students as to the reasons that people move to a new home in our home state of Hawaii.
The purpose of the project is to understand our new neighbors, particularly Micronesians.  We would like to bring attention to the reason that they wanted to leave and come to the United States (Hawaii) so we can support them as best we can.
I am interested in learning from people who have left a Micronesian Island for an ENVIRONMENTAL THREAT(s).  Reasons might include: rising water will make a home uninhabitable; fishing has gotten difficult or impossible because there are fewer fish, quality of fish has declined, or greater competition for fish; radiation exposure due to atomic testing in the South Pacific; invasive species have compromised the agricultural crops; changing weather patterns have made fresh water from rain less available; or any other reason having to do with the environment.
I am hoping that we can bring attention to the ways that we in Hawai’i can help support our new Micronesian friends; we can raise our awareness of environmental issues that our new Micronesian friends tell us about in the Pacific Ocean; and we can learn specific steps that we can take in our own lives that will help keep our shared Pacific Ocean environment healthy.
I will need this information before June 10, 2016.  Email me at:  lqueueg@yahoo.com
Thank you.

During this time, we visited Kosrae, where we met with local teachers, college instructors and local leaders. It was during this time when a farmer, hearing about a soil scientist arriving in the island, contacted our group leader and asked if we could visit his farm.
