Power of Community PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Power of Community free pdf When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba's economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half and food imports cut by 80 percent, people were desperate. This fascinating and empowering film shows how communities pulled together, created solutions, and ultimately thrived in spite of their decreased dependence on imported energy. In the context of global Peak Oil worries, Cuba is an inspiring vision of hope. The approximate running time is 53 minutes.

The group is a national resource for knowledge and practices on low-energy living, alternative energy and self-reliance, and their executive director Pat Murphy is the author of Plan C.
