    A small delegation of emerging youth leaders who departed from Maui over the weekend, will present the lei at various events and locations in Paris during their trip to the United Nations COP21 Negotiations.  The lei, launched by the Cynthia Rose Foundation, is made up of eight sections that combined, stretch a total of one mile.
