Political Science Department Statement on Global Climate Strike

The Department of Political Science at the University of British Columbia stands in solidarity with the millions of people worldwide who will participate in upcoming Global Climate Strikes demanding urgent action to address the climate crisis. At UBC, students, staff and faculty will gather on September 27 at 11:00 am in front of AMS Nest, to be followed by a bus and bike convoy to join other climate strikers at Vancouver City Hall at 1:00 pm.

The Department of Political Science supports this action and encourages instructors and students to participate. Accommodations will be made to students who miss any class that is not cancelled on September 27, 2019 in order that no students are penalized for participating in the Global Climate Strike. If you have a class on Friday, contact your instructor for details.
