Climate Emergency week at UBC seeks to convene and energize communities of climate action at UBC. Join our events, workshops and activities, and take collective action for justice, people, and our planet.
We are in a climate emergency. Greenhouse‑gas emissions from fossil-fuel burning and deforestation are choking our planet and putting billions of people at immediate risk 1. We need to dramatically reduce emissions and hold big polluters accountable now.
UBC declared a Climate Emergency in 2019 and produced a report in 2021 that focuses on climate justice, which goes hand-in-hand with climate action to address the disproportionate impacts of climate change on those communities least responsible 2.
Climate Emergency Week is your chance to join collective action for justice, people, and our planet.
Take part in events, workshops and activities, and share your thoughts, experiences, and ideas on social media to show your support for climate action at UBC. UBCclimatelove
