This conference was made possible by a grant from the Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Germany. We are incredibly grateful for their commitment to environmental awareness and the economy. Without both international and national voices, this conference would have been unable to garner such a wide range of experts, all of whom are respected and deeply knowledgeable within their respected fields.

We would also like to thank PICS, whose generous donation and support has made live streaming our panelists possible, in addition to aiding us with volunteers, their time, and so much more.

Furthermore, we would like to thank the Centre for the Study of Democratic Institutions at UBC.

We would also like to thank BauHaus Restaurant for their generous donation.
