Policy Boot Camps

Throughout the 2019–20 academic year, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions offered Policy Boot Camps to share our team's experience directly engaging with decision makers.

Duke University students had 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. Topics for the year included: 

  • Congress
  • Federal departments and agencies
  • International institutions
  • Water and ecosystem restoration policy
  • Working with foreign governments and U.S. institutions abroad
  • Green banks
  • Environmental justice
  • Electricity policy
  • Federal environmental authorities

Additional Policy Boot Camps will be scheduled soon. Please check back with us. Sign up for the Nicholas Institute newsletter to be alerted about future events.
