We are a student-driven initiative, funded by UBC, and supported by a wide array of offices and initiatives across campus. 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.

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 after Founder Grace Nosek and her PhD research inspired a collective movement towards what is now the Climate Hub at UBC. 

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

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

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 Hub and report to their Senior Director. These core staff are integral to ensuring a sustainable governance model that can support the incredible team of student staff, volunteers and advisors to mobilize student-driven climate action and initiatives in the short and long term.
