John Virdin

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. For the fall semester, 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.

In this session, John Virdin, director of the Nicholas Institute's Ocean and Coastal Policy Program, will introduce participants to international institutions and discuss what they do and how they differ from each other. Institutions covered will include:

- The World Bank
- The International Monetary Fund
- The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

A reception with free pizza and drinks will immediately follow the session.

Students who cannot attend the session in person can get more information on how to watch a live stream and submit questions in the "More Event Information" link below.
