Opportunities for students

CityStudio Vancouver

CityStudio Vancouver is an innovation hub where City staff, students, and community can co-create and implement ideas to make Vancouver more sustainable, equitable, joyful, and inclusive. 

CityStudio collects project ideas from City staff and matches these projects with courses at various post-secondary partner colleges and universities. As part of their coursework, students have an opportunity to work together with City staff to co-create pilot projects for the benefit of the community. 

UBC Sustainability Scholars Program

Since 2010, we have partnered with UBC to provide graduate students a unique opportunity to investigate solutions to real-world climate and sustainability challenges as a part of the Sustainability Scholars Program .

UBC graduate students are employed by UBC to complete 250-hour research projects supporting the Climate Emergency Action Plan, the Climate Change Adaptation Strategy, the Healthy City Strategy, and other strategic priorities, over the summer months.
