Decolonizing Puerto Rico’s Energy: The Renewable Revolution

When: Thursday, November 29, 2018, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Cambridge Library, Central Square • 45 Pearl St. • Cambridge


As Puerto Rico seeks to recover from Hurricane Maria, major decisions are being made about the island’s future.  Will global corporations impose the same old model or will grassroots sustainable alternatives win the day?   What are the implications elsewhere?  

Following a showing of Naomi Klein’s short film, The Battle for Paradise: Naomi Klein Reports from Puerto Rico, which lays out the challenges Puerto Rico faces, Sajed Kamal will share ideas and  examples of successful efforts to make the shift to renewables.   Dr. Kamal, who teaches in the Sustainable International Development department at Brandeis, has developed exciting renewable energy projects in the United States, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Armenia, and El Salvador.

His most recent book is The Renewable Revolution: How We Can Fight Climate Change, Prevent Energy Wars, Revitalize the Economy and Transition to a Sustainable Future.

Join us for this important discussion.
