UBC Reads Sustainability returns to IKBLC for 2012/2013!  The lecture series is an exciting program that brings well-known sustainability authors to UBC campus to engage in a campus-wide discussion. It’s part book club, part lecture series, and part opportunity to learn beyond the classroom. Above all, it’s a forum for students across disciplines to discuss sustainability issues.

Each year UBC Sustainability selects leading sustainability books, work with instructors across campus to integrate the books into courses, and then we bring the authors to UBC for a public lecture series.
