About: Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy (JUCCCE) is a non-profit think tank that catalyzes transformative change in the greening of China by convening coalitions of cross-border and cross-sector influencers around precise collaborative action that trigger tipping points in sustainable energy, urbanization, and consumption. JUCCCE has already helped catalyze key tipping points in the way China creates and uses energy by introducing Smart Grid to China, training over 800 government officials on eco-cities, and creating early awareness of energy-saving light bulbs.
Intern responsibilities: IIP interns will contribute to policy research and workshop management on a sustainable food program called "A New Way to Eat," where they teach sustainability to primary school students. The interns may also conduct research for JUCCCE's mayoral training programs. The research the interns produce will be used in the curriculum during the training classes which take place bi-annually. Candidates for this placement should have strong research skills as well as skills in graphic design, Photoshop, In-Design, and Final Cut Pro.
Previous work experiences (in the words of past IIP interns): Intern #1: Worked on urban development proposal for 10,000 people and created movie; wrote twenty page-paper on sustainable eating choices; edited website.

Website development for the organization, (I was responsible in making content updates and structural improvements to the official JUCCCE website). I also helped write a New Urbanization Council Paper, as part of a 8-10 person team. My responsibilities for this project included: developing policy recommendations, researching case studies, consulting with experts, and drafting a paper to be presented to the China Academy of Governance...I learned how to create and work on a project that needs to be started from scratch (from the brainstorming to the layout and actual writing of the paper).
