 CONFERENCE:o  Cuba has been selected for  special recognition by the
United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) this year  because of the
extraordinary progress it has made during the last decade in  creating
model programs in sustainable development.  o  The  conference is a unique
opportunity to gain an understanding of Cuba's  environmental policies and
programs; the significance of the Cuban model to  other countries of the
developing world; and how professionals from the  developed world can work
together with their Cuban counterparts to promote  sustainability world
wide.HOW TO GET THEREIn an effort to  facilitate your participation in this
conference, we are organizing a special  U.S. delegation that will meet in
Cancun, Mexico on Sunday, June  17 for the flight to Havana. The one- week
program will include the conference  itself; additional meetings with Cuban
specialists involved in projects in  organic agriculture, natural and
traditional medicine, and renewable energy; and  a visit to one of Cuba's
four internationally recognized Bio Reserves.   The program will conclude
on Sunday afternoon, June 24.Travel  arrangements will be made by Global
Exchange, a licensed Cuba travel service  provider with twelve years
experience organizing educational Cuba tours.   As professionals and/or
participants on an educational trip, you will be  fully licensed to
participate in this delegation.The cost of the  delegation will be $1300.
 This includes round-trip airfare from Cancun to  Havana; three meals per
day; accommodation at an ocean front, four star hotel;  full program with
translators and tour guides; all in-country transportation;  and attention
to delegates' individual professional requests. The  conference fee of $250

Participants will also cover the cost of their roundtrip airfare to
Cancun.WHO WE AREWe have been involved in sustainable  development projects
in Cuba for many years, each in our respective fields and  through our
respective organizations.  We have been continually impressed,  as have
participants on the many previous delegations, with Cuba's unique  and ever
broadening approach to meeting its food, medicine and energy needs in  an
integrated and sustainable way.  FUTURE   PROJECTSIn addition to the
conference delegation, we invite  you to become involved in future
interchange with our Cuban ecological  counterparts.  We are working on a
pilot project for a U.S.-based  organization which will interact more
extensively with Cuba's large  community of specialists who are developing
Cuban policies, strategies and  projects in sustainable development.  The
possibility exists for long term  U.S.- Cuba exchanges of great depth and
breadth.  We welcome you to join us  in this effort.Sincerely,Martin
