Universities or other institutions wanting to better support community wellbeing in relation to the climate crisis can now draw upon the findings of a new PICS-supported report, released this fall.

The Community Resilience and Wellbeing Amid the Climate Crisis report has been written by Meghan Wise, a University of British Columbia (UBC) Sustainability Scholar, with the support of the UBC Climate HubUBC Wellbeing and PICS.

The report highlights the linkages between climate change, mental health, and community wellbeing, and recognizes that nurturing community resilience has become a central factor for helping communities mitigate and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.
