Building a net-positive future: Dialogues at UBC Robson Square examines regenerative sustainability
John Robinson, Executive Director of the UBC Sustainability Initiative, thinks much of the green movement misses the point. The traditional thinking on sustainability focuses on the need to reduce human activity in order to save the environment from ruin. But what if human activity could actually heal the environment?

Robinson and collaborator, UBC architecture professor Raymond Cole, will share their unique vision in regenerative sustainability Feb. 1 at the Canada Foundation for Innovation Dialogues at UBC Robson Square lecture series.
