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.

 

UBC is planning to invest in these companies that it calls "sustainable" and "low-carbon."

 

Fossil fuels aren’t sustainable, and aren’t in our future.

UBC students and faculty have voted in favour of divestment in two University-wide referenda. Divestment is now an official policy of the UBC Alma Mater Society.

It is time to act:

Join us! We meet Mondays 5:00-6:00pm in Buchanan D205.


Event: UBC Bike & Hike
