Cuba Facing Forward: Balancing Transition with Development in the Caribbean’s Most-Watched Nation

The thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations is creating space for dramatic change and improvement in Cuba’s economy, society, and built environment. With this new mobility will come tremendous opportunity to revitalize Cuba’s economy and improve the lives of Cubans, challenges in addressing myriad transitional and structural issues, and urgency to set constructive frameworks, as actions taken in the coming months will shape Cuba over the next several decades.

This conference will: Create an open, frank, and constructive discourse on Cuba’s future; Explore via lively panels the possible effects of transition on Cuba’s built and natural environment, and how to harness the forces of change to improve both; Foster an ongoing multi-party conversation leading to guiding principles for economic, ecological, and cultural resilience in Cuba.
