I’ve just found a photo from summer. A group of 8 ELEEP members traveled to Budapest in July. The group’s agenda included meetings with top officials from the oil and gas industry, touring a cutting edge waste water treatment facility, and exploring firsthand the remarkable growth in biking as a form of urban transport in the city.
The Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy Network (ELEEP) is an initiative of the Atlantic Council and the EcoLogic Institute. ELEEP is the first transatlantic network of mid-career professionals working in or around these fields and serves as a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas, policy solutions, and best practices between emerging American and European leaders. ELEEP members, aged 25 to 40, come from a variety of professional and academic backgrounds including elected officials, academics, CEOs, legislative staffers, architects, and urban planners.
ELEEP members routinely conduct tours to destinations on both sides of the Atlantic for the purpose of investigating innovative solutions, problematic policies, and cutting edge developments in the environmental and energy fields.
