We are students, staff, and faculty at the University of British Columbia dedicated to using political action to address the climate crisis. We are committed to fostering government action to reduce exports of greenhouse gases from British Columbia, especially from coal and tar sands pipelines.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for Storm the Riding II in the Vancouver Point Grey riding on Saturday March 9. If you missed but would still like to pledge to vote for climate in mind, please see the pledge tab above. Here's a video of the event http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY3W0b68y-g&feature=youtu.be
We meet weekly on Thursday, in IBLC 185, from 5-6:15. We will not be having regular meetings again until September.
An open letter to BC’s political parties: re-commit to legislated greenhouse gas reduction targets; platforms must spell out climate actions
On October 24, 2012, UBCC350 and other community groups marched to Premier Clark's office to demand that Premier Clark rejects tar sands pipelines and other carbon exports. You can find us in this video along with other events that day around the province http://vimeo.com/52303865#. Additional images and video from our event are here.
On March 31, 2012, we knocked on virtually every door in Premier Christy Clark's riding, spreading information about BC's growing carbon exports and getting signatures on a petition calling on the premier to stop the Northern Gateway Pipeline. Check out the video for our Storm the Riding!
