Climate Change

Climate Action at UBC Library

The Library #Climate Action Team (L#CAT) was formed to address the existential threat posed by climate change within the UBC Library context. L#CAT works to identify and implement UBC strategic priorities and recommendations laid out in the UBC Declaration on the Climate Emergency, UBC Climate Emergency Task Force report, and the Climate Action Plan 2030.

Below we share initiatives of L#CAT and members of the UBC Library community.
