Environmental Justice in Cuba:

A Study of Cuba’s Environmental and Social Policies & Practice

Havana and the Western Provinces • April 20 – 29, 2015 • (May Day Extension: April 30 – May 3)

One of the many farmers’ markets scattered across the island of Cuba, supplying fresh, organically and locally-grown produce to supplement the basic ration to which all Cubans are entitled as one of their economic, civil and human rights.

Eco Cuba Network, Green Cities Fund and the Task Force on the Americas invite you to participate in this educational Cuba tour for environmental justice activists, supporters, students and professors. We will study Cuba’s unique social and environmental justice policies and practice. (A trip extension is being arranged for those who want to remain in Cuba for May Day activities.)
