Olelo Community Media announced Tuesday that it will provide over 20 hours of “exclusive” live local coverage of the IUCN World Conservation Congress.

It begins Thursday on Channel 49. The coverage will include:

  • IUCN World Conservation Congress opening ceremony on Thursday at 10 a.m.;
  • forum opening ceremony on Friday beginning at 8:30 a.m.;
  • high-level dialogues (two-hour moderated public debates that will feature internationally recognized experts, CEOs and public officials); and
  • closing ceremony on Sept. 10 beginning at 2 p.m.

The live programming will also be shown to a worldwide audience on Olelo’s YouTube channel and stored for future viewing.

“We hope that our live coverage of the congress will allow the people of Hawaii – and the world – the opportunity to better envision what a sustainable future looks like,” said Olelo president and CEO Sanford Inouye.
