Considering the alarming health and economic burden caused by sugar sweetened beverage consumption, one of the goals of UBC Wellbeing is to increase tap water consumption and decrease sugary beverage consumption among UBC Community members. The objective of this project was to engage the UBC community of staff, students and faculty in developing an evidence-informed strategy to promote water consumption and reduce consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages on campus to be rolled out in the summer of 2018. Feedback from the UBC community was obtained through an online survey and a series of engagement meetings.
