AMS Sustainable Club Practices : Final Report Wagih, Ali; Sun, Yu; Ade, Wemi; Khalifa, Ziad; Wang, Yanli


The purpose of the Alma Matar Society (AMS) Club Operations project, in a general sense, is to reduce the ecological footprint of the campus. This is achieved by assessing the equipment and operations of two AMS clubs that are moving to the University of British Columbia (UBC) Life building/Old Sub, in the context of sustainability and waste disposal. These objectives are aligned with UBC sustainability goals and reference the Student Driven Sustainability Strategy (SDSS). The project seeks to identify the club practices and assess for possible areas of improvement, as well as identifying waste disposal bins’ locations. The main data collection methods used are hosting focus group interviews and conducting site visits. Ultimately, a comprehensive list of recommendations is presented at the end of the report based on the results of the investigation. The recommendations presented help indicate to the AMS where it should devote its limited money and time and are considered applicable to the other clubs that will be moving.
