1 summer position at the China (Beijing) office of a leading American environmental NGO. The organization's work in China concentrates on green building, energy efficiency and sustainable transportation with a ten year goal of halving China’s growth in energy demand, halving mercury consumption and shifting production to clean energy technologies. The PiA intern will serve as an Analysis and Advocacy Intern, and his/her duties may incorporate research, communications, participation in education initiatives and attendance at off-site conferences to represent the organization. The small size of the office allows the intern to take on responsibility and use initiative to form new projects. Applicants interested in learning about the complex and growing environmental movement in China and about the role of international NGOs in China are encouraged to apply; knowledge of Mandarin is helpful but not absolutely necessary. The position runs from early June to late August.
This PiA internship is offered in conjunction and with generous support from the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI).
