UBC’s Okanagan campus has diversity of partnership projects
The Okanagan Sustainability Office has published the latest edition of Shift magazine, a periodical highlighting strategies and actions of sustainability initiatives on the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. Such stories as Moving from Research to Community Solutions, Sustainable from the Start, Blending Sustainability, More than Just a Walk in the Park, Flowing with Sustainability in Mind, Behind the Scenes and The Future at Your Fingertips detail some of the many new and continuing initiatives that make UBC’s Okanagan campus a leader in sustainability.
UBC also has the distinction of being recognized for its efforts by one of its sustainability partners, the City of Kelowna.
The City of Kelowna held the 2011 Mayor’s Environmental Achievement Awards at UBC’s Okanagan campus this week. The Most Environmentally Dedicated Individual Award was presented to Cigdem Eskicioglu, Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Her research program aims to develop innovative biological treatment processes in order to produce cleaner wastewater effluents and biosolids as well as to design reactor facilities to identify bioenergy options for minimized negative environmental impacts through organic waste utilization.
