The working environment at GEI is good and colleagues are very nice. I learned how to communicate with others and how to balance work and life under pressure.

I improved my English speaking, writing and translation skills, which are valuable and helpful for my future life.

Fang Fang LI, External Relations Intern

I had my internship during junior year summer vacation. During the internship, I had the privilege to learn about the conservation concession agreement and high-level international energy projects. The GEI colleagues are very kind to me, patiently guiding me and respect my views about the tasks. The lunch and snacks are also great! I encourage everyone to apply.

I loved interning at GEI, because the work felt very relevant and meaningful. In addition, I love that GEI works at the intersection of environmentalism and many other issues, such as poverty alleviation. Through my time as an intern, I was lucky enough to get to know environmental experts, to learn about environmental NGO work in China, and to see first-hand the hard work that produces GEI’s projects.
