This project is being funded by:

Kann-Rasmussen Foundation
The Foundation, named for the company's founder Villum Kann Rasmussen, was established in 1991 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Danish-based Velux roof window and skylight company, and its trustees are Aino Kann Rasmussen, Anne-Margrete Ogstrup-Pedersen, Hans Kann Rasmussen and Martin S. Kaplan. The company commenced sales in the United States in 1975 and later opened a manufacturing plant in South Carolina.

Alliance for Global Sustainbility (AGS)
The AGS is a new approach to strategically address problems affecting the "global commons." In 1994, the AGS was formed by three of the world's leading technical and research universities, the University of Tokyo (see their AGS site in Japanese), the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology [ETH] (see the ETH AGS site), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
