Invitation: Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS), SFU & UBC Free Public Lecture

Lecture #5: Sustainable Systems as if People Mattered

Changing behavior—especially the ways we use energy and water—is an essential part of any climate solution. Yet, our urban systems often preclude people from understanding and controlling them to improve efficiency. Dr. Stephen Sheppard from UBC, and Dr. Lyn Bartram and Dr. Woodbury from SFU come together to present two multi-university research projects—the Greenest City Conversations Project and Human-Centred Systems for Sustainable Living. These projects explore the interaction of technology and people, at both individual household and community scales, in making better decisions on energy and resource use. Free registration for this event is encouraged, but not required. Register online at
