Lessons from Cuba with Mario Alberto Arrastía Avila

What can we learn from Cuba? When nearly 70% of Cuba’s oil supply 
stopped in 1989 after the USSR collapsed, transportation, electricity, 
and food production were jeopardized. Cuba responded by shifting to 
widespread use of renewables and permaculture-based agriculture systems, 
making the country a world leader in sustainable development.

Join us in welcoming Cuba’s leading Energy Efficiency and Renewables 
educator, Mario Alberto Arrastía Avila. Mario is responsible for the 
development and delivery of energy education at all levels in Cuba, and 
is a passionate and engaging speaker.
