Holo Holo 2020 (Kauai Mayor’s Initiative)
Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho, Jr., created a vision for Kauai during his Inauguration speech on December 1, 2010 that has resounded throughout Kauai, the State of Hawaii, and the mainland United States. The vision, called Holo Holo 2020, calls for all organizations, businesses, residents and visitors on Kauai to be part of creating an island that is sustainable, values our native culture, has a thriving and healthy economy, cares for all – keiki to kupuna, and has a responsible and user-friendly local government. The Mayor's speech listed 38 projects which, when realized, will bring us to the vision of Holo Holo 2020. Over the next four years, the Mayor will be tracking progress on these projects, and will illuminate that progress through use of the Holo Holo 2020 logo.

Healthy Hawaii Initiative (Hawaii Department of Health)
For over ten years, the Hawaii State Department of Health’s Healthy Hawaii Initiative (HHI) has been supporting healthy lifestyles by implementing policies and programs to create sustainable changes in Hawaii’s communities, schools and workplaces. Launched in 2000, HHI is a statewide effort focused on reducing three core behaviors that contribute to chronic disease: smoking, inactivity and poor diet. HHI has made significant strides in helping Hawaii’s residents lead healthy lives and has been recognized for its success as a comprehensive public sector prevention program. HHI has expanded its efforts to also include chronic disease management programs and is now known as the Department of Health’s Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division (CDPHPD).
