The Wake Forest Working Group for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability is proud to support the Energizing the Future conference as part of its University Center Planning Grant activities. The Center for Environment, Energy, and Sustainability (CEES) seeks a world that understands the interrelationship between humans and Nature. CEES identifies challenges and creates change through research, education and outreach.

This conference is funded with generous support from the BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism, Wake Forest University Provost Jill Tiefenthaler, and Wake Forest University President Nathan Hatch as a component of his Voices of Our Time Lecture Series.  In addition, eight programs in the University also contributed financial resources.  They are  the Law School, the Babcock Graduate School of Management, the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Economics and Physics, and the interdisciplinary programs in Environmental Studies and Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise.
