HONOLULU — The UH School of Social Work and its Alumni and Friends Chapter introduce their Fall Forum with "Challenges to the Limits of Growth" featuring Paul "Doc" Berry, locally renowned writer of books and films such as "Waikiki, In the Wake of Dreams," "Dan Inouye, An American Story" and "ICE: Hawaii‘s Crystal Meth Epidemic." The free public program will be held on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 5 p.m.. in the UH Mānoa Korean Studies Auditorium.

Berry will explore how powerful global forces impinge on the well being of Hawaii‘s people and environment. He will describe a number of issues expected to be critical to the future of our Island state and the region, including global warming and sea level rise, population growth, energy depletion, challenges to transportation and housing resources, socioeconomic disparities and demographic trends.

The fall forum program is sponsored as a university and community service by the
UH School of Social Work and its Alumni and Friends Chapter to call attention to vulnerable life stages and conditions that call for greater public awareness and constructive policy formulation.
