Policy Boot Camp: Environmental Justice


Back to top

New for the 2019–20 academic year, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions is offering Policy Boot Camps to share our team's experience directly engaging with decision makers. Duke University students will have the opportunity to learn more about environmental policy making institutions—what they are, how they work, and how to engage them—through informal discussions with Nicholas Institute professionals.

Kay Jowers, senior policy associate in the Nicholas Institute's State Policy Program, and Chris Timmins, professor in the Department of Economics, will explore avenues for working with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and communities to support and resource progress toward environmental justice.

A reception with free pizza and drinks will immediately follow the session. While students are encouraged to attend in person, a live stream and video replay will be available on Panopto with a Duke NetID by clicking here. Questions can be submitted before or during the discussion by emailing
