Change the world with alumni UBC
alumni UBC is calling on members of the University of British Columbia (UBC) community who are making a positive change in the world to tell their stories as part of its “your evolution” program.The program isan innovative, online story-sharing platform that uses the strength of the UBC network to enable alumni, faculty, staff and partners to connect and support fellow alumni working on projects they are passionate about. UBC graduates, students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and donors who are involved in a socially beneficial project are urged to upload their stories up until March 1 to www.yourevolution.ubc.ca. Ten projects will be shortlisted by March 9 and the public will be asked to vote for their favourite. While only one prize will be awarded, all entrants will receive valuable exposure for their projects via the website and social media.
The winner will receive a “social entrepreneur support kit” including:
- Professional photography session or the production of a video to help its cause
- Mentoring session with UBC President, Professor Arvind Gupta
- Access to a consultation with a UBC faculty member in an area most relevant to the project’s needs (e.g. business, law, engineering, computer science).
