Learn directly from rural and urban Cubans prioritizing sustainability.

What to expect:

  • Learn about the history of Cuba’s relationship with U.S. imperialism
  • Hear first-hand the effects of the U.S. embargo and sustainable initiatives of food sovereignty, universal healthcare and education, and international relations
  • Meet directly with Cuban citizens, officials, artists, scholars, and students; visit museums, and tour different governmental projects in order to understand how Cuba uniquely operates within the global community
