The Eco Cuba Exchange programme is inviting guests from all over the world to participate in its quest for research and investigation in the environmental sector with a series of tours planned for February 2011.

Environmental Education Tour will promote Cuba eco-holidays

Eco Cuba Exchange is now inviting guests from the world over to take Cuba holidays with a special eco-interest and participate in this research tour for environmental educators in Cuba -- a nation that has been called "the only nation to have achieved sustainability" by the World Wildlife Foundation.

As global interest in environmental protection and sustainable development has gained momentum, people the world over have turned to schools as venues for community-based environmental and food-sustainability projects. In fact, reformers and researchers concerned with environmental and food challenges commonly view schools as the single most critical space for broader eco-social transformation.

Proving that Cuba holidays are about so much more than just sunny beaches, Cuba's nation-wide community and school-based environmental education programmes have been internationally praised for over two decades. In 2006, the World Wildlife Foundation declared Cuba to be the only nation living sustainably due to its high Quality of Life indices and low Carbon Footprint.

Travel to Cuba with this educational environmental programme and meet the policy makers and practitioners who make it happen!

Tour the sites and meet the staff and volunteers of:

  • Sustainable development projects in Havana and rural Cuba
  • Urban gardens, rural farms and farmers' markets
  • Environmental NGOs, such as the Foundation for Nature and Humanity
  • Scientists and Educators at the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment
