Victor Lam

Victor is broadly interested in the social and cultural dimensions of climate change, with a focus on the role of religious actors in climate change politics and communication. Specifically, he is interested in the processes in which these actors converge political tactics, networks, communicative strategies into ethical, spiritual and ecological frameworks. His current research examines how religious environmental organizations construct and tailor their messages on climate change in their involvement with the Trans Mountain resistance in Vancouver.

Prior to his studies at UBC, he worked as a research assistant at the Department of Geography and Asian Energy Studies Centre at Hong Kong Baptist University, where he facilitated projects on energy policy and governance in China, Hong Kong, and Japan. He has also worked with several grassroots and religious environmental organizations in Hong Kong and Canada. He completed his BASc with Honours in Sustainability, Science and Society at McGill University.
