The Nest… opens minds and feeds imaginations

The Nest at UBC is one of the newest venues in Vancouver. It is making headlines for a few reasons – for being a LEED Platinum Certified building, one the greenest building in North America, for its focus on learning and being a hub of activity, and for being a space that people want to enjoy. It is the perfect location for CHCE and for you to learn about the latest information on Cannabis-related public policy, research, education, business and environmental sustainability.

Being on campus for two days gives you an opportunity to explore the area – the Museum of Anthropology, the Botanical Gardens, and the local beaches. And you can stop in at one of the many excellent restaurants in Kitsilano at the end of the day. UBC is a beautiful campus that is removed from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver, so we hope you are able to take advantage.

The Nest at UBC is only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver, and is well serviced by transit and bike lanes. There is ample parking if you are driving.
