UCI is fortunate to have substantial open space, a feature that distinguishes the institution from most other major research universities. This presents a generational opportunity – how do we want to present ourselves, physically, to the world? To address this, we have redefined the concept of “outdoors” here at UCI, calling it our Naturescape, where institutionally, we can leverage that potential in ways that contribute to our core values. One of those core values is to embed health and wellbeing into all aspects of campus culture, emphasizing the interconnectedness between individuals and their environments.


Please join us for an informative session to learn more about current and upcoming campus initiatives helping to create a more holistic and health-promoting built environment. We will be joined by a panel of speakers who will provide insight on the vision and design concepts of Naturescape and its alignment with current wellbeing campus initiatives, including adoption efforts for the Okanagan Charter.
