UVic, UBC, UNBC receive funding to accelerate climate action


University of Victoria, University of British Columbia, and University of Northern British Columbia have received funding from the Pacific Institute for Climate Solution (PICS) to accelerate climate action. With this funding, two research teams from UVic will embark on climate-related projects in Victoria and in the ocean; two teams from UBC will explore how to use Indigenous wisdom to prevent wildfires and how to turn excess carbon into useable products; and a research team at UNBC will connect people in mountain communities with information on climate change adaptation. Each team will receive $180K over three years through PICS’ Opportunity Projects Program.
