We believe that every individual can be active in caring for their own wellbeing as well as the health of their communities.
The Workplace Wellbeing team would like to acknowledge that UBC is situated on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam (UBC Vancouver) and Syilx (UBC Okanagan) peoples and that we are uninvited guests on this land. We’d like to extend this acknowledgement to the territory on which you reside and its caretakers since time immemorial.
We believe that every individual can be active in caring for their own wellbeing as well as the health of their communities. It is important to acknowledge that a universal set of essential needs underpin wellbeing. These include safe, healthy, supportive and empowering systems and environments as well as equity and human rights. It is our responsibility as an institution to provide and contribute to these environments, which will in turn contribute to our community’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Community wellbeing is the cornerstone of our work, and we appreciate you taking the time to engage.
