The AMS Sustainability Projects Fund (SPF) was established in September 2011, when UBC students passed a successful referendum to support student-initiated sustainability projects, through a $2.25 per student fee each year. The SPF encourages an environmentally conscious culture, by funding student-led projects that reduce the ecological footprint of UBC students and their campus. The proposals are reviewed on a monthly basis. Apply Now!
AMS Sustainability also develops their own Sustainability Initiatives too. These projects are run by the student staff of AMS Sustainability and often involve collaboration with other students, clubs, or organizations. Have you heard of the AMS Lighter Footprint Strategy? That was an AMS Sustainability led initiative. We are also responsible for a lot of the sustainability features in the Nest, such as the Rooftop Garden and the AMS Sustainability Centre.
