On behalf of the Sustainability Ambassadors, we would like to bring your attention to the upcoming Sustainability Research Symposium (SRS) on March 18, 2016. We believe that this symposium will foster connections between students within the Faculty of Land and Food Systems and sustainability research.
The symposium will showcase the spectrum of graduate research surrounding sustainability and provide further opportunities for graduate students to share current research with the wider UBC community. We are targeting students engaged in social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
We would like to ask for your help in forwarding the information below to potential graduate presenters. Please confirm with us if you are able to pass the information below, and if not, please help us connect with the right person within the Faculty of Land and Food Systems in order to do so.
Thank you very much. Looking forward to hearing back from you!
