China Environmental Science & Sustainability Research Group

An initiative of the Centre for Chinese Research (CCR), Institute of Asian Research, UBC, the China Environmental Science and Sustainability (CESS) Research Group is an attempt to connect China experts with expertise in environmental science and sustainability research and praxis. 

Current activities focus on inventorying current initiatives with similar ambitions while also identifying possible synergies within the UBC community and beyond. Future workshops, lectures, and calls for CESS related graduate and undergraduate coursework are also possibilities.
