Who are we?

Founded in 1984, the Institute of Urban Ecology at Ƶ has the unofficial motto “There is nature in my city”.  Since its establishment, IUE has been involved in a myriad of community-based activities and projects. These projects include: an environmental outreach and education program that reaches about 2000 participants in schools and community organizations in Metro Vancouver each year. 

There is nature in my city

This motto reflects two important ideas:

Urban areas have an inherent ecological nature.

Community engagement is an explicit component of the work of the IUE and a vital part of urban ecological sustainability.
