Green Day at UBC Geography

Illustration featuring many climate-friendly practices including cycling, electric vehicles, recycling, planting trees and green energy.

As part of our commitment to acting on the climate crisis, we have a monthly Green Day!

Implemented by Geography’s Climate Action Committee, we will take the last Friday of every month to work, teach and learn from home (where possible) and to encourage a focus on issues relevant to climate change in lesson plans.

In reducing our transit emissions for the day, and increasing understanding and dialogue around the climate crisis, we aim to encourage other departments around UBC to join us in making climate change awareness a priority.

Our hope is that Green Day can grow to become a campus-wide event.

“What makes this initiative so potentially impactful is the ability for any UBC department or organization to meaningfully participate.”
