What is the Youth Climate Ambassadors project?

The Youth Climate Ambassadors Project (YCAP) empowers high school students to take meaningful climate action.  In these hour-long workshops, facilitators (UBC students) engage participants (high school students) in the climate action movement through a narrative of hope and agency. The goal is to introduce participants to different perspectives when thinking about climate change, climate justice, and to drive home the power of personal narratives in the fight for climate action. 

What is the UBC Climate Hub?

The UBC Climate Hub is a new, student-driven initiative that believes in the power of youth, hope, community, and storytelling for inspiring action to address the looming global threat of climate change.

Its mission: to connect and empower university and community stakeholders to take bold climate action for a just future.

Founded in 2005, Be The Change Earth Alliance is a Vancouver-based charitable organization that empowers change for a resilient, just, connected, and sustainable world. Be the Change has grown from a facilitator of small, community-based sustainability workshops into a creator of eco-social education, with its curriculum now being used by teachers province-wide. 

Its mission: to empower an environmentally sustainable, personally fulfilling, and socially just human presence on this planet.
