On behalf of Baruch College and the International Center, I am writing to inform you about our Climate Change Professional Fellows Program. This is an international program which will convene professionals and young emerging leaders from Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, and the United States to explore the science, impact, adaptation, mitigation and actions related to climate change. This program is funded through USAID.
The program will create opportunities for professionals and young emerging leaders in the field of climate change to come together and share strategies for reducing carbon emissions. Fellows will participate in workshops and internships while in the U.S. Many topics will be explored, including the management of climate change in urban settings – the development of Smart Cities and Smart Grids.
Eligible participants from Australia, China, Indonesia, and Japan can come to the U.S. in either the Spring (April 3, 2011 - May 6, 2011) or the Fall of 2011. Participants travel expenses, lodging, meals and educational materials are paid for by the program.
