Pam Montanaro of Eco Cuba Exchange announces the next research delegation to Cuba for June 4 – 13, 2010.
The delegation will study Cuba’s remarkable progress in environmental protection and sustainable development in both Havana and in rural Cuba. In 2006, the World Wildlife Fund declared Cuba to be the only country in the world to achieve sustainable development due to its high human development level and low ecological footprint.
This research delegation is an opportunity to learn about Cuba’s accomplishments, struggles, developing policies and programs in organic agriculture, urban gardens, energy self sufficiency, management of protected areas, environmental education, and other related areas of ecological interest. The delegation will meet with representatives from Cuban environmental NGO’s, government ministries, and educational institutions. The group will visit sites of environmental significance and see firsthand how Cuba has become a possible model of sustainable development for the developing world.
