Climate Stories from UBC

October 27 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

On October 27, climate researchers from UBC will gather to tell stories about their work for climate justice, their partnerships with communities from around the world, and how their work contributes to the global struggle for our future.

What is UBC doing to support climate justice and sustainability research? Join us for a film screening and talks centered on climate justice.

The event includes multiple speakers from UBC including faculty and students, as well as Severn Cullis Suzuki from the David Suzuki Foundation. The event also includes a screening of the short version of the documentary Terra Libre, and a discussion with film director Gert-Peter Bruch and Chief Ninawa. Chief Ninawa is a hereditary Chief of the Huni Kui Indigenous people of the Amazon, and PWIAS International Indigenous Scholar. This will launch a discussion on Indigenous land rights and resistance in the fight to protect the Amazon region.

The event will be held at Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, 5151 Oak Street, and is open to the public and free to attend. Food and drinks will be served to all participants. Registration is suggested for catering purposes.

Climate Stories from UBC is a gathering collaboratively organized by the Public Scholars Initiative, The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, UBC Sustainability Hub, UBC Climate Hub, and the Centre for Climate Justice.
