"EOAS recognizes the existence of a climate crisis, which demands coordinated and determined global action. In the face of overwhelming scientific evidence, society must urgently take steps to avoid the worst potential outcomes of anthropogenic climate change. EOAS is committed to bringing our research, teaching, operations and public outreach fully in line with this recognition and in solidarity with the UBC Declaration on the Climate Emergency.” 

- Philippe Tortell, EOAS Department Head

“In response to overwhelming student support & people power, UBC declared a climate emergency in 2019. The Climate Emergency Committee helps EOAS meet its commitments to addressing the climate crisis.”
