About Us

We are a new, student-driven initiative at UBC, funded by UBC Administration and supported by a wide array of offices and initiatives at UBC. We believe in the power of youth, hope, community and storytelling to inspire hope and action to address the looming global threat of climate change.

 

Vision

Speeding the transition towards a just and sustainable low-carbon future.

 

Mission

Connecting and empowering university and community stakeholders to take bold climate action for a just future.

 

Our Story

The vision for the UBC Climate Hub originated with a dedicated group of student volunteers who wanted to see their ideas for climate action become a reality. During the summer of 2018, the Climate Hub was endorsed by UBC’s president, and received support from the university’s senior administration. The core work of the Climate Hub is now coordinated by two dedicated staff members and a team of part-time student staff, who are hosted by the UBC Sustainability Initiative (USI) and report to the USI Senior Director. These staff support the work of an incredible team of student volunteers and advisors.
