UBC’s Got Skillz are hands-on, DIY workshops geared towards learning skills that involve upcycling, sustainability and green living. The workshops, run by the Tangible Solutions team, are fun, social, and educational, with something of interest to everyone.

Some past workshops have covered the following topics:

  • How to tune up your bike
  • DIY pop-can camping stove
  • Moulding Fair Trade chocolate as Valentine’s Day gifts
  • Sustainable sushi-making
  • Making coaster and bowls out of used magazines
  • Self-watering pots
  • Blending your own tea
  • Making reusable cling wrap out of beeswax and cloth

A video on green living was also put together to complement UBC’s Got Skillz:
