alumni UBC Around the World: Europe
UBC’s global alumni network is over 370,000 strong, with alumni living in 150 countries worldwide. As our world has become increasingly digital over the past year, alumni UBC has identified new ways to bring our global alumni community together virtually. One example of this is the global event series alumni UBC Around the World, which launched in June 2021, with a focus on helping alumni meet fellow grads in their region, learn more about UBC’s global footprint, and stay connected to UBC no matter where they may be.
The first event in the series was for our UBC alumni living in Europe and the UK. The program began with a short In Conversation segment featuring Frankfurt-based host Paula Amiama (BCom’13) and Amsterdam-based producer and documentary filmmaker Andrea Walji (BA’98).
Listen in as Andrea shares about how she is bringing attention to the climate crisis through her work with WaterBear Network — the first streaming platform dedicated to the future of our planet.
Presented in partnership with the UBC Sauder School of Business.
