About the Transatlantic Program

Welcome to the Transatlantic Program at Ecologic Institute.

Ecologic Institute's Transatlantic Program strengthens transatlantic relations in the field of environmental policy, as well as in the integration of environmental concerns into other areas of policy, such as foreign relations and trade. Since 2001, the program has focused on transatlantic relations both between individual countries and among the European Union, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.

In 2008, the Ecologic Institute, Washington DC office was founded to strengthen the bridge across the Atlantic. Two of its key programs, "Europe and its Policies" and "Transatlantic Outreach" enhance exchange about environmental policy developments in the European Union.

Ecologic Institute's international staff has expertise in handling the "soft" parts of international and intercultural understanding insofar as they affect the "hard" policy issues. Internship and fellowship opportunities for transatlantic applicants are offered through the International Fellowship Program, in part through support of the Konrad von Moltke Fund.

For inquiries about the Transatlantic Program please contact McKenna Davis.
