Groups envisioning Lihue’s future

Kauai Planning & Action Alliance, Inc. (KPAA) provides a forum for the community on issues that matter most to Kauai. We serve as a neutral convener and facilitator, bringing together and guiding action teams and committees to develop and implement solutions to Kauai’s priority issues.

Emphasizing Collaboration. KPAA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization, offering community groups, nonprofits, government agencies and businesses opportunities to work collaboratively. Our work is guided by the input of our members and the community vision in the Kauai General Plan 2000.

Current Goals. Volunteers from diverse sectors work together on selected goals to tackle priority issues. Currently, KPAA goals focus on planning for Kauai’s sustainability, supporting and transforming education through youth development, state park improvements, and using community indicators to help guide decision making.¬† We are also assisting the County of Kauai by exploring new economic development opportunities.¬† On occasion, KPAA offers workshops and activities for Kauai nonprofits designed to increase skills and build capacity.

Design Thinking
Applying Design Thinking principles to generate human-centered, out-of-the-box solutions for community issues. A half-day workshop at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School in June introduced Design Thinking — a powerful collaborative problem solving tool for business, government, education and nonprofit leaders.
