Hi everybody!

The Environmental Science Students Association (ESSA) is a student club representing the environmental science program at UBC. We are dedicated to bringing together people with a passion for the environment. To do this, we organize social events for students to get to know each other outside the classroom. We also put on academic conferences and discussions with professionals in the environmental sciences field, as well as study groups for the program’s core courses. We also take part in events promoting public awareness of environmental issues.

Please contact us at anytime if you are interested in joining ESSA or the environmental science program!
