Sustainable San Anselmo Presents...
Cuba: A Model of Sustainable Living
Steve Goldfinger from the Ecological Footprint Network will join us to discuss how the Ecological Footprint is calculated and why Marin County's footprint is so high- 4.8 Earths! Steve will also explain how sustainability is measured based on the resources used by a country's population and the quality of life of its citizens. By this standard, Cuba is currently the only sustainable country in the world.
Following this lecture we will screen the film The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil, which takes an in-depth look at how Cuba reduced its dependence on fossil fuels to become a model of sustainable living.
Seating is limited, so please come early.
