Our Mission & Values

Our Mission

To inspire the deepening and discovery of human connection and collaboration for a sustainable world.

Kohala Institute at ‘Iole provides a rich environment for discovery through place-based experiences that encourage connections with place, self, and others as a basis for developing and renewing relationships in preparation for challenging discussions; a neutral place where long-term solutions to longstanding challenges are collaboratively determined and embraced.

Our Core Values

Collaboration starts with the building of relationships based on a common set of universal values. At Kohala Institute, it starts with GRACE.

Gratitude – Recognize that everything is a gift or a lesson

Respect – Be open and truly listen

Accountability – Take responsibility for ourselves and the impact of our actions

Courage – Act with integrity

Engagement – Contribute our gifts to benefit others
