SEEDS Sustainability Library

The SEEDS Program Library is Campus Sustainability's digital repository for all SEEDS student reports. Senior level undergraduate and graduate students work collaboratively with UBC staff and are guided by faculty to produce recommendations that advance sustainability in campus operations. To see a visual map of the partnerships across campus, click here.

Reports in the Library provide a historical record of sustainability at UBC. They contribute to creating a culture of sustainability on campus, and offer valuable sustainability research to the global community.
