The Student Environment Centre (SEC) is a resource group mandated by the University of British Columbia Alma Mater Society (UBC AMS) to provide environmental and sustainability resources for the UBC community. We are actively involved in organizing, promoting, and supporting various initiatives that critically examine the interactions between humans and the environment.


We organize a number of workshops and discussion sessions promoting environmental awareness throughout the year. Please subscribe to our newsletter or follow our Facebook page to remain up-to-date about events and initiatives.

Support for Student Initiatives

Some of the resources we offer include funding, volunteers, and event promotion for projects that address environmental and sustainability issues. Learn more about the SEC Eco-Initiatives Fund at Funding. If you would like to promote your event in our newsletter and/or on our social media channels, please send an email to sec.ubc@gmail.com with all the relevant details. Events submitted by Sundays at 11:59 pm will be included on that week’s newsletter.


The Student Environment Centre office is located in Room 2106 (within the Resource Lounge, Room 2102) of the AMS Student Nest. The Resource Lounge is located above Honour Roll Sushi, or straight off the elevator next to the Hatch Art Gallery.
