No, it’s not a typo. The Harvest Feastival has become an annual tradition here at UBC; which is an outdoor feast for 800+ people on University Commons (area outside the Nest) set up in a tent that is designed with traditional long tables.

UN SDG Youth Training at UBC

UN SDG Youth Training at UBC

As a fellow enthusiast for world change, any event that mentions making a global difference definitely piques my interest. The training session was nothing short of brilliance and insightfulness – I came in as an eager student willing to listen and learn, but I came out being able to be critically reflective and motivated to […]
