Film Festival Premiere exploring Cuba’s unique approach to the
adaptation and mitigation of climate change.
In 2017, the Cuban government approved the State Plan to
confront climate change, known as ‘Tarea Vida’ (Life Task). As a
small Caribbean island, up to 10% of Cuban territory could be
submerged by the end of the century. This documentary shows
how Cuba is using environmental science, natural solutions and
community participation in its 100-year plan for adaptation and
mitigation. There are lessons here for the world.
The documentary will be introduced by Dr Helen Yaffe and
followed by a Q&A + panel discussion with guests including
Dr Emily Morris and Hugo Rivalta.
