We have two extraordinary delegations heading down to Cuba from August 1 
to 8, 2009. Both are official programs designed by Cubans to familiarize 
friends from abroad with island advances that hold vital lessons for 
social well being and environmental sustainability.

These journeys are for people like you keen on learning about the 
island's renowned education system and its hallmarked eco-alternatives 
and organic farming achievements.

We warmly invite you to join us and serve as a people's ambassador to 
the island this summer.

discover the reasons why Cuban youth rank highest academically in the 
Americas, and how come island teachers are held in such high esteem. 
You'll get a firsthand take on Cuba's free education to through 
university, and the resulting social benefits.

Members of this envoy will meet, dialogue and network with distinguished 
pedagogical authorities from K-12 institutions, universities, and unions 
and ministries of education. Tour delegates will also experience 
unparalleled cultural activities including Cuban music and dance lessons 
and ample nightlife. You can plan on an engagement with a world-famed 
urban planner, meet-and-greets with contemporary artists, and an 
exclusive glimpse into Afrocuban life.

and rustic farm villages in western Pinar del Rio province, and the
