UBC student Angela Boag says climate change impacts her life and future in numerous ways: from the ecosystems she studies, to the devastation of the Philippines, to Canada's democracy, to the coast mountains she skis in. "In thirty years, we might not be able to ski outside of Vancouver," she said.
On the UBC campus, students are spreading the news about the importance of the November 16 "Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities" rally which is to take place at Science World at 2pm. The rally is part of a national day of action on climate change. According to Nicholas Curry, communications director for UBC 350.org, climate change is a big issue for students at UBC. “It’s the issue that will define our generation,” he said. “It’s important to create events that everyone who cares will come to because its the best way to show that this issue really matters to people.”
