The Power of Community – film viewing


Anyone interested in viewing the film the “Power of Community – how Cuba survived peak Oil” is welcome to attend the next meeting of the B.C. Sustainable Energy Association in Kelowna this Thursday evening the 10th of January 2008.  The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 PM at the boardroom in the Student Services building of Okanagan College on KLO Road in Kelowna.

You do not have to be a BCSEA member to attend our meetings.

The film is about Cuba – in the early 1990’s Russia pulled it’s financial support from Cuba due to internal problems.  Up till then Cuba had a petroleum based, energy intensive economy.  When Russia pulled out, they were forced to drastically reduce their energy use almost overnight.  The film covers transportation (bikes became a more common means of travel), agriculture and more.  An excellent one hour film.
