What makes a place & a society sustainable? Cuba is island home to 11 million people and more animal and plant species than anywhere else in the Caribbean. Added to environmental riches are cultural riches, such as universal literacy, free and effective healthcare, access to art and culture, a burgeoning local, sustainable agriculture. Melding survival under terms of isolation with a philosophy of social good has made Cuba what it is today: a vibrant, changing country and culture. Come and learn about sustainability, Cuban-style!

We plan to meet with, and learn from, people engaged in:

· The literacy campaign that made Cuba a UN-designated “illiteracy-free zone”

· Current education, of both youth and communities

· Local, sustainable agriculture

· The current “drivers” of the economy

· Responding to global climate change, a particular threat to island nations

· The Sierra del Rosario Biosphere

· Creating the art that sustains the Cuban soul & performance events

· The Martin Luther King Center, a vibrant hub for community education and faith

· Ecology, of the earth, of communities, of the mind

· And more!
