- Juliana Barnard is an elected member of Truro City Council and is proposing a platform for sustainable development. Juliana is also a founding member of the Living Earth Council, an environmental non-profit organisation working in Truro, and is the School-Community Development Officer for the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial.
- Tina Northrup is a staff lawyer for the East Coast Environmental Law Association, a charitable organization that provides public interest environmental law services throughout Atlantic Canada.
- Dr. Antoine Sautenet is Director of Public Relations for Michelin Canada. Responsible for government affairs in Europe, Asia and North America, since 2019 he has been in charge of sustainable mobility for the group, through the Movin'On project, as well as international trade. He represents the company's issues, including the development of new sectors such as hydrogen in Canada.

Nathalie Geddry, journalist for Radio Canada, will moderate the event. After a long career as a cultural journalist, Nathalie Geddry hosts and produces the daily program La mouvée, which is heard in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland.
