Mission

Our mission is to improve disaster preparedness, response, and recovery through volcano education and resilience network building, focusing the the island of Hawaii. HVERI operates year-round in either normal mode or disaster mode, with education and information as its primary means to positively impact communities on the Island of Hawaii, especially those most at risk of volcanic impact near the rift zones of Mauna Loa and Kilauea. The end goal is to improve coordination, collaboration, and preparedness in times of crisis, ultimately leading to more effective and efficient response efforts and a faster recovery.

Digital Resilience Program

As a newly established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Hawaiian Volcano Education and Resilience Institute (HVERI), our commitment lies in strengthening our community through our Digital Resilience Program. Which provides a safe online space for our community to exchange information and mobilize resources, both during normal times and during disasters, including against AI-driven threats. This includes facilitating a two-way flow of information between the community and emergency managers.

Population(s) Served

Our Volcano Education Program proven success provides those living on Hawaii Island with the knowledge necessary to coexist with geologic activity and threats from the worlds largest and the worlds most active volcanoes. Our work in covering Hawaii's volcanic activity, especially during the significant events like the 2022 Mauna Loa eruption and the impactful 2018 LERZ eruption of Kilauea, along with several Kilauea summit eruptions between 2019 and 2023, underscores our commitment to this mission.

According to research conducted by USGS, our premiere Digital Resilience Hub, Hawaii Tracker, outperformed traditional news, local government, and USGS in relevance, expertise, sincerity, and pace in the 2018 eruption which destroyed over 700 homes in the Puna District.
