A visit from the clean energy experts of Blue Planet Foundation, including founder Henk Rogers, has inspired students to become sustainable energy superheroes. The foundation’s goal is to accelerate Hawai‘i toward 100 percent use of non-carbon energy sources.

Motivated by the Blue Planet team’s visit from Jan. 7 – 19, students across campus are making a pledge to reduce energy use and consider clean energy sources, like these fifth-graders pictured with Rogers, who was a leader in the global video game industry and credited with bringing the legendary game Tetris to a wide audience.

Every year, for over a decade, the Punahou Chapel and the Luke Center for Public Service have partnered to invite speakers to share stories that embody the connection between faith and action. The Spirit and Service Speaker Series is generously supported by gifts from the Class of ’41 Chapel Fund and the Chaplain Kenneth O. and Doris A. Rewick Community Service Fund.
