Back to top

The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions offers 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.

This session will explore pathways for working with foreign governments and institutions to further positive environmental policy outcomes. Jackson Ewing, senior fellow at the Nicholas Institute, will discuss working directly with environmental ministries—with stories from Singapore and China. Jonathan Phillips, director of the Energy Access Project at Duke, will cover tools of U.S. economic influence abroad—focusing on development finance, foreign assistance, and export facilitation—and related priorities of the new administration.

Policy Boot Camps are available for current Duke students only. RSVP at the link above with a Duke email address to receive a link and instructions for joining on Zoom.

Rescheduled from February 19.
