“The future of climate and energy policy starts with us. But there aren’t always resources available to help aspiring policymakers navigate their careers. We have no shortage of passionate young people who want to make a difference, only a shortage of professional development opportunities to support their growth. CELI exists to address this gap.” Adam James

Founder & Chairman of the Board of Directors
