The UBC Climate Hub and the UBC Sustainability Initiative are partnering to launch a pilot project to bring about greater integration of climate change and climate justice content throughout courses across departments starting this fall.
The resource is hosted on the USI website (https://sustain.ubc.ca/climate-teaching-connector). Course instructors are encouraged to use this website to connect and collaborate with climate experts from across the UBC campus who can share their unique expertise with the instructor’s students as guest lecturers.
Questions? Email the project lead, UBC Climate Hub’s Pablo Akira Beimler, at [email protected].
