Hilton Head, SC, March 11, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Sea Islands Society is pleased to announce the launch of a new community platform for those with an interest in the future of Hilton Head Island to share their dreams for what the Island should look like in 2030.
Specifically, Hilton Head Island Vision 2030 Voices will provide community leaders with a platform to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the ten themes already identified by the Mayor and Town Council.
For the Sea Islands Society, the goal of Hilton Head Island Voices 2030 is to provide community leaders with a platform to express their own ideas, opinions, suggestions, and criticisms on the issues that will most impact the future of Hilton Head Island. For example, Hilton Head Island Vision 2030 Voices will provide a platform for community leaders to explore questions such as how the theme of strong tourism will affect diversity and inclusiveness on Hilton Head Island. Or, how the themes around nature and conservation will affect the mitigation of sea level rise.
Community leaders interested in participating in Hilton Head Island Vision 2030 Voices should contact James Carroll, Managing Director of the Sea Islands Society, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30, 2016.
The Sea Islands Society is one of the regional societies under the Islands Society. Its primary mission is to develop and implement programs that enable individuals and sub-national organizations from barrier island communities along the coasts of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina to more fully participate in international relations. Specifically, the society develops and implements programs that provide women, ethnic minorities, and the next generation of leaders from these island communities with the knowledge, networks, platforms, and exposure required to realize their full potential as artists, athletes, chefs, designers, educators, musicians, nurses, scholars, policymakers, scientists, and technologists on the world stage.
