Climate Research Made Real : Practical Applications of Research towards Better Futures Giang, Amanda; Low, Maggie; Wong, Rita; Harrison, Kathryn, 1958-


In the December 5, 2019 Declaration on the Climate Emergency, the UBC Board of Governors stated that the University has a mandate “to effect change beyond our institutional boundaries” and to “advance a sustainable and just society across British Columbia, Canada and the world.” In response to this mandate, UBC Library's L#CAT (Library Climate Act Team) organized the panel event, “Climate Research Made Real: Practical Applications of Research for Better Futures”. Moderated by Kathryn Harrison, Professor in the Department of Political Science, panelists include Amanda Giang, Assistant Professor in the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and the Department of Mechanical Engineering; Maggie Low, Assistant Professor in the School of Community and Regional Planning; and Rita Wong, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Culture and Community at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Many thanks to Sustainability & Engineering | Campus + Community Planning for awarding UBC Library a UBC Workplace Sustainability Fund grant in support of this event.
