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.
