The UBC Climate Change Research Symposium will bring together, virtually, climate researchers from multiple faculties on our Vancouver and Okanagan campuses.

While UBC is a recognized leader in climate change research, there is limited connectivity between the clusters of relevant research activity across the many faculties on our campuses. This symposium, featuring panel discussions and keynote speakers, will to help make those connections and enhance the potential of UBC researchers to impact climate change through research and innovation.

Join us on October 13 & 14. The symposium is primarily intended for the UBC research community, but all are welcome to attend. Registration is limited.

On December 5, 2019, the UBC Board of Governors endorsed UBC’s pronouncement of a climate emergency. For more information on UBC’s climate emergency engagement process, please visit:
