Bailing the Bathtub
BY KAHI PACARRO
@ VOL 27
ON JUN 10, 2016
Standing on the banks of polluted Manila Bay, Philippines, Kahi Pacarro found himself taking a 180 life direction. Having a successful career in real estate development (a large contributor to pollution), he made the choice to sacrifice the successful monetary career for a successful career that would help preserve Hawaii and the world’s future generations and most importantly his progeny. Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii provides experiences that are focused on awakening volunteers that items being removed off our coastlines are the same items many of us use daily. Stepping back from the assumption that beach clean ups is all there is to do, Kahi works with volunteers to share the true solution of stopping the debris from being created in the first place. Clean beaches start far away from the beach, so lets’s focus on the source.

Deo Bagh to host PechaKucha Gwalior
We are very pleased to announce that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior has joined hands with PechaKucha Gwalior in organizing the most creative event - and the ONLY global platform in Gwalior, aka The City of Zero - on 24th June 2017. While most heritage hotels in Gwalior are born with the beauty and treasures of history, only some of the best hotels in India have the luxury of housing architectural treasures within the property. Deo Bagh is one such example out of all Gwalior hotels. Two 17th-18th century Maratha temples, two splendid cenotaphs and one pavilion with 36 arched doors, within the property make Deo Bagh a unique choice of accommodation in Gwalior! The 15 rooms spread across 5 wings, facing a Nau Bagh, a garden chequered into nine parts are a haven of calm from the daily hustle and bustle of the Indian street, making it the perfect venue to relax among the other Gwalior hotels. Just as PechaKucha Gwalior offers a highly innovative platform to showcase the talent and creativity in the city, it is refreshing to see that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior shares the same spirit and responsibility in developing and curating the city...virtually for all stakeholders - be they students, business community, NGOs, or other segments of the society. We highly value and appreciate this union, and express our sincere thanks to Deo Bagh's owner Mrs. Uma Devi Jadhav
