UBC’s campus and neighbourhood environments play a vital role in the physical, mental, and social wellbeing of students, staff, and faculty. So how can green building design enhance this?
During summer 2018, UBC Sustainability Scholar Mina Parsian worked with Campus and Community Planning staff to investigate how to create healthier work and living spaces on campus with the WELL Building Standard. Her study is just one example of the many research projects that will be launched through the Green Building Action Plan over the next 20 years. The plan embraces a Campus as a Living Lab approach, which engages with academic research to find innovative solutions to building design.
