blueEnergy delivers energy, water, and sanitation to some of the world’s most isolated communities, providing a foundation for health, education, and economic opportunity. While remote, these communities are at the center of the battle over indigenous rights and eco-system sustainability — and their fates are closely linked to ours. Craig will discuss blueEnergy’s work on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua and its focus on creating a learning platform for future leaders interested in energy, water, and international development.
Mathias Craig is a UC Berkeley alum and the co-founder and executive director of blueEnergy.
