Building the City of the Future One Block at a Time - Santa Marta, Colombia

CEELAT partners with Living City Block - LCB to work on the development of LCB Santa Marta and LCB Latin America.  

LCB is an ini­tia­tive to help cities redesign and retro­fit inef­fi­cient and/or aging build­ings at the block scale and is com­mit­ted to work with com­mu­ni­ties to cre­ate resource hyper-efficient, eco­nom­i­cally sus­tain­able and health­ier and more liv­able neighborhoods.  

Aggregation of square footage at the block scale enables economies of scale for small-medium sized build­ings and lends the abil­ity to work with local gov­ern­ments to imple­ment not just trans­for­ma­tive energy solu­tions, but also to rework water, waste, health­ier streets and better community relations.

Promoting Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in LAC

Currently CEELAT hosts the regional office of the Latin American and Caribbean Council on Renewable Energy (LAC-CORE).   
Since 2008 both organizations have been working together in the efforts to bring renewable energy and energy efficiency into the mainstream of the Latin American and Caribbean regions - via diverse outlets such as regional economy, industry, trade, government, environment, and climate change.

By engaging these regions on multiple levels, we aim to reduce regional dependence on fossil fuels, improving health, safety, and economic security in the hemisphere.
