Under the leadership of its new executive director, Dr. Ian Mauro, the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions has entered a period of renewal.

This refocusing seeks to better align climate research — across our academic network that includes UVIC, UBC, SFU and UNBC — with the priorities of decision-makers and communities throughout British Columbia and Canada.

PICS is committed to the power of partnerships and holding space to contemplate and address both the enormous challenges and opportunities ahead. By working together, we can develop and coordinate more effective and durable climate solutions, which link cutting edge academic scholarship and technology development with plans, policies, and projects across BC. This collaboration is essential to meet the ambitious climate goals in BC, Canada, and across the planet.

We will be hosting engagement and collaboration events, online and in person, during this our 15th anniversary year.
