UBC supports Vancouver’s greenest city plan with grants for students to work on green projects
One of the first initiatives is the creation of the Greenest City Action Team Scholars program, which will see UBC provide grants for 10 graduate students to help implement the Greenest City 2020 Plan.
UBC and the City of Vancouver have signed a multi-year agreement promising to work together on common goals of sustainability, climate action and a green economy.
UBC is offering its expertise to help Vancouver achieve its 2020 dream, adapting programs that have worked well at the university to meet the needs of an urban centre, said UBC President Stephen Toope.
