Please join us in extending congratulations to Dr. Jan Hare (EDST; Associate Dean, Indigenous Education) and Dr. Moss Norman (KIN) for being one of four teams across UBC awarded Campus as a Living Lab (CLL) Fund grants. These inaugural grants are designed to support innovative research projects on the Vancouver campus that support strategic sustainability priorities and embody the principles of a living lab.
Drs. Hare and Norman will use their $42,308 award to support their project (Re) Imagining Indigenous-Centred UBC Campus Recreation. The project will address two UN Sustainable Development Goals, including ‘Good Health’ and ‘Sustainable Cities and Communities”, by responding to several priority calls to action within UBC’s Indigenous Strategic Plan (ISP), with an over-arching objective to decolonize campus space and advance and support Indigenous self-determination through socially and culturally sustainable campus recreation.
