Knowing that tradition and science are essential to build a sustainable future and that environmental leaders are needed for today and for the future, Cubanakoa invites you to join us in Cuba. Explore Cuba’s advancements in sustainable development while also immersing yourself in Cuba’s vibrant culture.

Our Journey in hosted by the Antonio Núñez Jiménez Foundation for Nature and Humanity, and together we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of an expedition that was a remarkable scientific endeavor organized and directed by Dr. Antonio Núñez Jiménez. This expedition was a highlight of Dr. Núñez’s life, greatly influenced his work, and propelled him to become one of the main explorers of the 20th century worldwide. Thirty years after this historic journey, his vision of what is possible—through a Culture of Nature, to achieve harmony between society and its environment—has acquired strength and validity. We will join the International Symposium “In Canoe from the Amazon to the Caribbean, 30 Years After,” to be held in Havana, Cuba, from June 25 to 28, 2018.

Additional highlights of the program include an in-depth tour of historic Guanabacoa, the once sacred homeland of native Cuban Indians; a visit to the Hatuey Canoe at the Antonio Nuñez Foundation for Nature and Humanity; and a visit to Organiponico Alamar organic farm. The tour will also include tobacco farm and rum factory visits to allow you to connect with local people in their places of work, and to receive insight into not just the production processes of these products but also learn about workplace culture in Cuba. This tour is specially designed to allow you to connect and engage with your soon-to-be friends and family in Guanabacoa and Havana, as you will be able to dine and jazz through the evenings with them or just relax to a tranquil Cuban bolero at a bar nearby the centrally located hotel.

Proceeds will go towards the sustainable revitalization of Guanabacoa, creating jobs and projects in areas including cultural preservation, organic farming, workforce development training, and leadership and peace education.
