Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions
Policy Boot Camps

Policy Boot Camps

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. Following four well-attended sessions in the fall, upcoming topics for the spring will include: 

  • Working with foreign governments and U.S. institutions abroad
  • Green banks
  • Environmental justice
  • Electricity policy
  • Federal environmental authorities

Policy Boot Camps will be held on select Friday afternoons in the Grainger Hall Board Room (Room 5109). A reception with free pizza and drinks will follow each session.

While students are encouraged to attend in person, a live stream and video replay will be available on Panopto with a Duke NetID. A video link and more details for each session will be available below.
