Video Subject & Artist Statement (this may be publicly posted):
In this video, three San Marino High School seniors ask President Barack Obama to bring together, in Hawaii on an annual basis and for at least the next ten years, a group of fifteen American high school students and a group of fifteen Chinese high school students.
This group of thirty would reside for a one-week period of time at the University of Hawaii and while there learn about:
The effect of climate change on Hawaii and the Pacific
Pollution and how it affects Hawaii and the Pacific
Overfishing of the Pacific
Pacific marine habitat destruction
Rising Pacific sea levels
After the annual meeting, the American and Chinese youth would be expected to return to their homeland with a plan-in-hand designed to (1) help protect, preserve, and conserve the Pacific and (2) broaden understanding and build trust between the people of the United States and China through education, philanthropy and collaboration.
The name of the annual meeting:
The Sino American Youth Collaborative - Focus on the Pacific.
This video includes great words of support from Jon Huntsman, the former US Ambassador to China (2009 to 2011).
