SPHERE Training (in French)

Training on minimum standards for humanitarian action in disasters. People affected by a disaster or conflict are entitled to protection and assistance, as well as to basic conditions that enable them to live in dignity.

The Future of Our Food & Climate

Climate change will affect every aspect of our everyday life - down to the very food we grow and consume. With the increasing number and intensity of floods, droughts and the daunting rising of global sea-levels, how will climate change affect how and where we grow our food? How will governments of the world adapt to the changing landscape and be able to feed all its people?

Join us for this interactive workshop examining the structure of food systems, featuring our student co-hosts UBC Africa Awareness Initiative & AMS Colombian Student Association.

Seeking Refuge: The Canadian Experience

Global refugee crises have resulted in the need to fine-tune policies that can enhance the experience of those who we welcome in our countries. Canada has welcomed 28,000 refugees in 2018. While we see a lot of statistics, refugee lives belong to individuals with unique experiences of seeking refuge, settling and building new lives in the host countries.

In this panel, we will learn from researchers and explore the unique experiences of refugees in Canada and especially from the UBC community. Join us for this interactive panel featuring our student co-hosts UBC

Webinar - Insider Perspectives from COP25: what happened, how to move forward, and why systemic climate action is critical for sustainable development

In December, the BC Council for International Cooperation sent an all-youth delegation to the UN Climate Conference (COP25) in Madrid. They advocated for bold climate action to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5 degree warming target, and raised their voices on behalf systemically disadvantaged groups within Canada and around the world. Two advance both of these aims, the delegation has published a brief for Canadian policy makers outlining recommendations for a revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the Paris Agreement. The brief identifies inextricable linkages between the climate crisis and other aspects of human society such as Indigenous and human rights, intergenerational equity, energy, food systems, natural ecosystems, climate finance, and health. The webinar will be facilitated by the COP25 youth delegates. They will debrief their experiences at the conference, outlining major conceptual themes within the international climate diplomacy discourse. Overall, the aim of the webinar is to foster an understanding that sustainable development cannot be achieved without solving the climate crisis.

Watch for the list of micro-grid technology service providers and success stories in the form a resource kit for government departments, international development entities, and NGOs who are in the process of executing their climate finance strategy plans. The list will be available on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram as well as on MagateWildhorse.ca. We believe the list will also be useful to actors involved in job creation, climate change, women and economic empowerment. You are welcome to add to the resources that we have compiled in the kit via comments.
