Terrestrial Research on Ecosystems & World-wide Education & Broadcast || An Innovative Graduate Training Program
The Terrestrial Research on Ecosystem & World-wide Education and Broadcast ( TerreWEB) program launched in 2011. TerreWEB has supported numerous students directly and indirectly by providing training in the field of Science Communication and beyond; via workshops, seminars, and national and international internships and lab rotations. TerreWEB was developed through a one-time grant. The program ended in November 2016. Since then, this webpage is not being maintained any longer.
TerreWEB (Terrestrial Research on Ecosystem & World-wide Education and Broadcast) is a graduate training program that focuses on effective communication of global change research.
Selected as one of three 2011 programs at UBC funded by the NSERC-CREATE (Collaborative Research and Training Experience) initiative, TerreWEB aims to have Master and PhD students integrate global change science, social science and communications research. TerreWEB is an enriched, interdisciplinary and collaborative graduate training program focused on global change impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, mitigation and adaptation strategies, and the role of scientific communication to affect appropriate changes in human behaviour for adapting to global change. TerreWEB is inclusive, and invites current and potential UBC graduate student and their supervisor, with research focussing on terrestrial ecosystems and communication to become a part of our team.
