Forests and Livelihoods International

Students supported by this project will embark on exciting journeys to study how the complex interactions of global forest management, conservation and land use shape the livelihoods of people. The University of British Columbia seeks to break down barriers of historical exclusion for experiential learning by developing and disseminating best practices to support Indigenous, disabled and lower-income students in international field schools, coop terms and study abroad opportunities. Drawing on information from partner organizations and advisory groups, UBC will provide tailored supports to students in these authentic experiences, and facilitate student leadership and advocacy for study and work abroad programs.
