MPPGA Global Policy Project Symposium

The Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs at UBC cordially invites you to attend our inaugural Global Policy Project Symposium. A defining element of our MPPGA curriculum, the Global Policy Project (GP2) provides the opportunity for teams of MPPGA students to engage with policy makers and civil society on a real-world policy challenge.  At the symposium, each team will have the opportunity to present their project and outcomes and receive feedback from the community. A light networking lunch will follow the student presentations.

This year’s projects and partnering organizations include:

  • Inclusive Financial Services | BASIX, India
  • Implementing Sustainable Development Goals in Canadian, Mexican, and Peruvian Indigenous Communities: a focus on clean drinking water | Global Affairs Canada
  • Leveraging Private Finance for Public Good in Indonesia | Secretariat of the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility, Indonesia

Presentations will be from 10:00AM–12:00PM, and lunch will be from 12:00PM–1:00PM.


If you are unavailable to join in person, you can still join us by tuning in to Facebook Live or by joining our Bluejeans Meeting.
