Sustainability Ambassadors

The Sustainability Ambassadors  is a sustainability education outreach activity of the UBC Sustainability Initiative (USI) Teaching, Learning, & Research Office. Volunteer Ambassadors work with the Sustainability Student Engagement Manager as part of a team to deliver sustainability programming to fellow students on UBC's Vancouver campus.  They also network with student groups on campus to promote sustainability education. 


The Sustainability Ambassadors Program is committed to leading and inspiring the UBC community to learn more about sustainability, and to explore how sustainability principles and practices can be embedded into their own lives to effect positive and lasting changes.


To encourage the UBC community to engage in holistic learning and conscientious living through collaboration and critical thinking, while also raising awareness of sustainability in order to achieve a sustainable future.
