About the Climate Justice Project (CJP)
The Climate Justice Project is a five-year research and public engagement alliance led by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and UBC. It brings researchers in numerous disciplines from three BC universities together with more than 40 social justice groups, environmental organizations, trade unions, First Nations groups, and other research institutes. The CJP uses BC as a case study to examine the social and economic implications of a serious and sustained effort to reduce GHGs and adapt to climate change, and to articulate policy options that are effective, equitable and that have broad public support.
The CCPA is an independent, non-partisan research institute concerned with social, economic and environmental justice. For more information, visit www.policyalternatives.ca.
Better Environmentally Sound Transportation (BEST) is a not-for-profit charitable organization in the field of sustainable transportation, and is a community partner in the Climate Justice Project.
About the Transportation Outreach project
The project will disseminate findings and organize events around the Transportation Transformation report that was released by the Climate Justice Project earlier in 2011. The timing of these activities is to coincide with and be targeted to take advantage of the 350.org theme of Moving Planet, with the expectation that public and invitational events will be held in the week leading up to and on the day of September 24th. The project will also include communications about these events and potentially regarding other 350.0rg events in the Metro Vancouver area.
You should have included the very important restriction included in the person specification which excludes many worthy candidates. Only UBC grads can apply.
Thanks – just corrected it.
