As students, faculty, staff, and alumni, we are calling on UBC to be a leader in addressing climate change.

Humanity confronts a grave and urgent crisis in climate change, and immediate dramatic actions are required. We have a moral duty to act.

While UBC has made some great strides on climate change, these efforts are deeply undermined because the administration insists on continuing to invest in the full scale of the fossil fuel industry.

Divest the Rest

While we have reached a huge victory in driving UBC to create a $10 million fossil free fund, we know that divesting less than 1% of UBC's endowment does not constitute meaningful action on climate change. We are continuing to advocate for the full divestment that UBC students and faculty voted for.

Kinder Morgan

The Kinder Morgan pipeline is incompatible with Canada's climate commitments and responsibility to respecting Indigenous rights and title. We are mobilizing students against the project through rallies, fundraisers and personal bank divestment actions.

UBC's Next Century

UBC's next strategic plan will shape the university's priorities, values and decisions for years to come. We are collaborating with eleven other student groups to ensure that UBC makes bold commitments for sustainability leadership in the new strategic plan.

Join us in urging our institution and government to take meaningful action on climate change.


Upcoming Events

Fundraiser for Pull Together - Early October, 2017

We are continuing our opposition to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project by participating in Pull Together's campaign of 9 Days of Solidarity, from Oct 2-15. In doing so, we will be fundraising to support First Nations legal battles against the pipeline project, and will be showing solidarity by attending the court cases. Together we can show that people and communities are more important than corporate interests!

Stay tuned for more details.

Conference on Corporate Accountability - Early November, 2017

We are collaborating with other environmental justice groups, West Coast Environmental Law, and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives to organize a two-day conference on Corporate Accountability. We aim to facilitate connections between different climate justice groups and discuss different tactics of holding the fossil fuel industry responsible for the devastating effects of climate change that it enacts, thus making a profit while communities suffer.

Stay tuned for more details.
