Student engagement and community building for sustainability Runkle, Quinn; Sadowski, Rosalind; Willock, Angela; Rasmussen, Spencer


Student engagement in sustainability is an emerging field of importance. This project addresses the need for more research on the topic by examining both student engagement and, as a support, community building for sustainability. The University of British Columbia is at the forefront of sustainability innovation and has already made great accomplishments in its support for student initiatives. This project works to better inform future endeavors as well as make specific recommendations in regards to our findings. Student engagement in sustainability is a critical step in building a more sustainable campus at UBC and beyond.
