Climate Commitment Statement

 

 

We face a climate emergency recognized in declarations by the Government of Canada, the City of Vancouver and communities throughout Canada and the world. The School of Information at the University of British Columbia stands in solidarity with the millions of people worldwide demanding action on the climate crisis. We commit to encouraging and enabling our faculty, staff and students to participate in calls to action. Together, we are taking steps to respond to this crisis through our research, teaching, learning, and academic and community service. As an information school, we will leverage our interdisciplinary skills and knowledge and our academic and professional networks to address societal challenges arising from the climate crisis.
