‘Cuba-recent developments in sustainability’ Speaker: Wendy Emmett
Tuesday September 4th 2018
Friends Meeting House
Wendy Emmett is a member of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign National Executive. Many people have become increasingly aware of the environmental achievements of Cuba, and she has organised and led tours to Cuba visiting farming co-operatives, sustainable energy projects, urban horticultural schemes and farmers markets and national parks.
In addition, as coordinator of the UK based Cuba Organic Support Group, she has been involved in arranging visits to the UK by a number of Cubans; academics, farmers, researchers and community activists who have spoken at meetings and visited projects all over the country.
You probably know that Cuba has long been in the forefront of achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, but there are now fears that they may be threatened by Trump’s intensification of the US blockade.
