Emily Lowan
Emily Lowan is passionate about creating climate justice and social equity at University of Victoria, in Greater Victoria, and across Canada.

As Director of Campaigns and Community Relations for the UVic Students' Society, she led a successful Divest UVic campaign that will decarbonize the university's $250 million investment fund. As a student representative for UVic's Climate Action Plan Committee, she was instrumental in strengthening the university's climate targets and accountability. She also played a key role in the university's decision to make sexualized violence prevention training mandatory for all new students.

She successfully lobbied Saanich Council to significantly improve affordable housing availability in the municipality. Emily fought for greater student representation in local transit decision-making. She also coordinated opioid overdose prevention training for nearly 500 students.
