China Environment Forum (CEF)

Location: Washington, DC

"For fourteen years, the Woodrow Wilson Center's China Environment Forum (CEF) has implemented projects, workshops, and exchanges that bring together U.S., Chinese, and other environmental policy experts to explore the most imperative environmental and sustainable development issues in China and to examine opportunities for business, governmental, and nongovernmental communities to collaboratively address these issues." See the CEF website at The U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law at Vermont Law School invites students to apply for an unpaid summer externship doing policy research for the China Environment Forum at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. Under the guidance of CEF Director Jennifer Turner students may work on topics such as building new U.S.-China energy and climate networks, the water-energy nexus in China, environmental governance, food safety, water management, nongovernmental organization development, environmental justice, and municipal financing for environmental infrastructure. Students are responsible for funding their own housing and any other living expenses while interning in Washington D.C.
