Matt Dolf is the Director of the Office of Wellbeing Strategy at UBC, providing strategic direction and capacity-building support for UBC Wellbeing. He also currently co-chairs the Canadian & International Health Promoting Campus Networks, facilitating knowledge sharing and collective action worldwide.

Linda Nowlan leads the Sustainability Hub at UBC as Senior Director. She has over twenty-five years of experience in sustainability as a public interest environmental lawyer and NGO leader.

Funding will support new living lab projects that build interdisciplinary collaborations, advance research and operations, and explore innovative solutions to complex challenges.


The Campus as a Living Lab Fund Competition is helping UBC researchers test new ideas to support climate action, resilient systems, sustainable places and communities, and health and wellbeing.  

Our 2022 CLL Fund Competition received applications from faculty and staff in over 23 different departments at UBC Vancouver – and featured a broad selection of amazing ideas for using campus land, buildings, resources, and community as a testbed for sustainability and wellbeing innovations that could have wider applications for BC, Canada, and the world.
