UBC Reads Sustainability

We’re very excited to be a partner with UBC Reads Sustainability. This is an exciting program that brings well-known authors on the topic of sustainability to our campus to engage in a campus-wide discussion.

Why the emphasis on reading? We want to have an informed discussion that starts before the guest speakers appear and lasts well after the microphone goes silent. Sustainability matters to all of us and we want people to read how it matters to others and to think critically about how it matters to themselves.

UBC Reads Sustainability is all about engaging students and faculty from all disciplines to ensure that we’re all thinking about a sustainable future.
