Brussels Environment Interns (BEI)
A group of young professionals at the start of their environmental careers have set up a networking group for environmental interns in Brussels. The aim of the network is to provide an arena to share contacts and pool resources between NGO, Parliament and Commission interns who work specifically in the field of environment. Though only formed in March, already the group has grown into an active network of over 100 young people representing the many states of the EU and has organised several successful events such as a Green Drinks Networking Evening. A major upcoming event for the diary is the intern only round table event with Environmental Commissioner Janez Potočnik in May.
If you would like to share your expertise with the next generation of environmental professionals, or would like some more information about the group, or have any ideas for potential collaboration, please get in touch with Alice Goodbrook via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
