Full house at our "Oil-Free Costa Rica" forum

September 11, 2016

 

We had a very successful event and I am very relieved.  It was co-organized by the Canadian Embassy and Costa Rica Limpia, the group I lead.  It was based on my TED talk and I focused on why we need to abolish oil (and fossil fuels) just as we did with the army.  It is very important to me to hear from others who are inspired by this vision and we held a panel to discuss electric mobility as a way to accelerate a new model of transportation that does not use neither gasoline or diesel. Nearly 100% of our electricity is fossil free so why not switch to electric mobility? We discussed the bill on incentives to electric mobility that congress is debating.

 

A summary of  the event is here (Spanish).
