Climate change is undeniably one of the largest impacts of human behaviour and may be humankind’s greatest challenge.
Global warming has already driven higher temperatures and will result in rising ocean levels, increased storm strength and occurrence, and drought that will alter food production, biodiversity, migration and human disease patterns. Every day over 3 billion searches conducted on Google reflect the growing global concern for the health of our planet. And just like you, nothing has weighed more on our students, faculty and staff than the need for urgent and accelerated global environmental action.
But beyond our passion and commitment to finding climate solutions, the unique convergence of engineering, nursing, architecture and community planning places the Faculty of Applied Science squarely at the intersection of health, technology and community and is the engine of environmental innovation at UBC.
