When nearly 70% of Cuba's oil supply ceased with the collapse the USSR in 1989, it had serious repercussions on transport, electricity and food production. Cuba responded by shifting to widespread use of renewables and permaculture-based agriculture systems, making the country a world leader in sustainable development.

ATA is supporting a tour by Cuba's leading Energy Efficiency and Renewables educator, Mario Alberto Arrastía Avila who is responsible for the development and delivery of energy education at all levels in Cuba. Mario is a passionate and engaging speaker. He will be presenting public forums and professional workshops along the east coast, beginning in Brisbane on 21 July.

Go along to hear about Cuba's "Energy Revolution" and what Australia can learn from it.
