Students outside library

VIU Sustainability Book Club

Read along and join a weekly conversation with VIU peers on climate change and what we can do to prepare for a changing and increasingly disruptive future.

Hosted by VIU’s Sustainability Advisory Committee, the VIU Sustainability Book Club is open to all VIU students and employees. The book club will dive deep into the novel Building a Resilient Tomorrow, by Alice Hill and Leonardo Martinez-Diaz and discuss what communities can do to be more resilient against climate change. The novel explores international examples of climate change resiliency and highlights how North American communities can integrate resilience through actionable recommendations. We anticipate the book club will bring together diverse perspectives across VIU disciplines that will allow for a timely, meaningful and inspired conversation. 

The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 10 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. The structure of the club moving forward will be determined. If you are interested, please join this private Facebook group - VIU Sustainability Book Club - or email
