|- |Kyle Nelson |width=30%| The Faculty of Land and Food Systems and the UBC Community Learning Initiative |width=45%| I feel that the power of story telling is often over looked. Stories empower, enable and engage. The ability to shape and share a story about you and your work is a powerful way to empower people to act, enable processes to change and engage those on the periphery who might otherwise stand still.

|- |TerreWEB |width=30%| TerreWEB |width=45%| TerreWEB is a graduate training program that focuses on effective communication of global change research. Selected as one of three 2011 programs at UBC funded by the NSERC-CREATE (Collaborative Research and Training Experience) initiative, TerreWEB aims to have Master and PhD students integrate global change science, social science and communications research. TerreWEB is an enriched, interdisciplinary and collaborative graduate training program focused on global change impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, mitigation and adaptation strategies, and the role of scientific communication to affect appropriate changes in human behaviour for adapting to global change. TerreWEB is inclusive, and invites current and potential UBC graduate student and their supervisor, with research focusing on terrestrial ecosystems and communication to become a part of our team. We are looking to collaborate on a wide-range of projects, e.g. seminars, workshops, campus-wide and off-campus internships and lab-rotations, outreach initiatives and more.
