Centre for Climate Justice

Established in 2021, the Centre for Climate Justice at UBC advances the urgent social, political and economic changes necessary to address the climate crisis.

The Centre for Climate Justice works with movements, communities, students, and policy makers to develop research and analysis that addresses climate breakdown in connection with multiple, interlinked, and cascading crises. We believe that climate justice at its best is the labour of repair, redistribution, and world building.
