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.
Come along to hear about Cuba’s “Energy Revolution” and what New England
can learn from it. Mario will also address the recent opening in the
relationship between Cuba and the United States.
