Speaker series with Alejandro Jara Weitzmann

## Speaker series with Alejandro Jara Weitzmann Schiller Paris hosted yet another fascinating speaker this Wednesday. This time, and on the timely theme of environmental issues, we invited Alejandro Jara Weitzmann, the Latin American Representative of the think-tank **OSI Observatoire Social International and SAS GDF SUEZ** to give a talk on “Sustainable Development Goals and Social Dialogue.” In his talk he covered [COP21 agenda issues](http://www.cop21paris.org/), challenges arising from recent global summits and social questions, corporate social responsibility and new opportunities for dialogue and engagement with civil society. As always, and in line with Schiller’s pledge to engage and **connect students with the real world**, the talk wrapped up with a discussion on how to start a **career** in these different sectors: NGOs, international organizations, think tanks, and the private sector; all of which Mr Jara-Weitzmann has extensive experience working in. It opened up a lively debate, and we are extremely grateful for this opportunity. Tags: [speaker series](http://paris.schiller.edu/tag/speaker-series/)
