A simple bold promise lies at the heart of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): to end poverty and leave no one behind. At UBC, our research, learning and teaching, operations, and student engagement activities contribute to Canada’s commitment to achieve these goals.


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: A Snapshot of UBC Activities [2020/21] report highlights one project or program relating to an operational aspect of each SDG at UBC. Examples from both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses are included.

It’s hard to capture the depth and breadth and interconnection of UBC’s myriad sustainability activities. For a more comprehensive view of sustainability at UBC, also see our Annual Sustainability Report.
