As the next phase of implementing the UBC Declaration on the Climate Emergency, UBC is hosting a series of thematic virtual community dialogues to provide space for students, faculty, staff and the broader campus community to learn, engage, and discuss bold actions around the climate crisis. There are a number of themes that the SCARP community would be interested in and would be able to contribute your unique insights and knowledge to this effort.
