Climate change is the most significant threat globally and a key area of research in almost every discipline. This guide offers resources for researching climate change as well as news and UBC specific information.
The Library #Climate Action Team (L#CAT) was formed to address the existential threat posed by climate change within the UBC Library context. L#CAT works to identify and implement UBC strategic priorities and recommendations laid out in the UBC Declaration on the Climate Emergency, UBC Climate Emergency Task Force report, and the Climate Action Plan 2030.
The climate crisis colloquia series, running from January 13th to February 17th, 2022, is a series of talks exploring the intersections between earth science and a society-spanning response to the climate crisis.
Discover the climate resources curated by the EOAS Climate Emergency Committee, including the EOAS Carbon Offset Short Guide, sustainable travel guidance, one-stop climate science resources, and skills to navigate through climate anxiety.
Course instructors are encouraged to use this website to connect and collaborate with CTC climate experts from across the UBC campus who can share their unique expertise with the instructor’s students as guest lecturers.
This resource is for everyone looking to creat space to talk about climate change, as well as
anyone interested in bringing climate justice, trauma-informed pedagogy or a resilience lens
into their network or practice.
This paper reports on a second set of engagement processes focused on developing the first stage of EESD degree-level learning outcomes that, in turn, aim to guide course redevelopment within the engineering programs
The aim of this project is to develop an interactive online textbook with open educational resources (OER) for teaching geomatics across UBC faculties. Existing OER geomatics textbooks are flat: they lack interactive examples, tools, and case studies that make cutting-edge geomatics so engaging.
Part 1 of this paper presents four approaches UBC instructors used to insert sustainability content into different types of large, first year courses. In order to help instructors employ teaching methods that support sustainability learning, Part 2 of this paper summarizes a range of pedagogies that relate to sustainability and transformative education.
This document provides additional information about each attribute with additional learning objectives, examples from UBC and beyond, as well as some potential assessment tools which could be used to help develop, and then assess students understanding of these key sustainability concepts.
This platform contains a number of biodiversity maps here on UBC's Vancouver campus. Here, users can browse through spatial data to learn more about organisms and habitats found here on campus and make their own unique maps using the various layers from existing maps
The case study walks the learner through an introduction to how climate change further exacerbates wildfire occurrence, alongside the myriad health impacts that stem from wildfire smoke exposure. Notable importance is given to the need to advocate for Indigenous Sovereignty and traditional ways of knowing around wildfire management
Six videos cover topics of pollination, sustainable fisheries, invasive species, wildfire management, water resources and alternative energy production. These video prompted in-class activities provide an opportunity to bring to community voices and perspectives into the classroom while developing scientific thinking.
