Abstract

The Alma Mater Society (AMS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is looking to create an Interactive Sustainability Centre (ISC) with the intent of encouraging community cohesion around sustainability issues. This research project, conducted by five School of Community and Regional Planning graduate students, aimed to understand student interests for the ISC space . The project's key research question was: How can an interactive space in a student centre facilitate the sharing and uptake of innovative ideas in sustainability on campus?
