To advance the goals outlined in the UBC Wellbeing Strategic Framework, the Canadian 24-hour Movement Guide, and the Okanagan Charter, the Climate & Movement cohort within the Sustainability Ambassador Program developed a series of Wellbeing Breaks aimed to raise awareness and spur action on sustainability and climate change issues.  

The Wellbeing Breaks project was piloted during the Move UBC month in February, offering participants four themed activities: Scavenger Hunt, Nature Art, Guided Meditation, and Directed Nature Walk, each lasting 10-15 minutes.  
With a focus on mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing, these sessions connected participants with nature in an urban environment, inspiring reflection and sustainable action. Since then, the Wellbeing Breaks have been integrated into the UBC Move U Crew's Movement Breaks and implemented in lectures, seminars, meetings, and events across the UBC Vancouver campus.
