  • University of British Columbia

The entire University of British Columbia (UBC) campus is a living laboratory for sustainability in which researchers, students, operational staff and private and public partners can build, test, learn, teach, apply, and share the outcomes of their inquiries. Join Dr. John Robinson as he describes the ways in which UBC is striving to prove out the technical, economic and behavioral aspects of sustainability in its simpler institutional environmental and prepare the next generation of sustainability leaders.

Robinson is the Associate Provost, Sustainability at UBC and is a professor with UBC’s Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability and Department of Geography. Robinson’s research focuses on the intersection of climate change mitigation, adaptation and sustainability; sustainable buildings and urban design; the use of visualization, modeling, and citizen engagement to explore sustainable futures; the intersection of sustainability, social and technological change, behavior change, and community engagement processes.
