Are You Interested in a Career in Science Policy or Diplomacy?

If so, you might want to consider engaging in activities that support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And the great news is, there are careers that allow you to do this while still working alongside academia.

This webinar will feature three scientists involved in the world of international science policy. Through their stories, you’ll learn how to:

Mobilize young scientists and youth around the world to engage in and influence policy-making.

Donovan Guttieres will talk about his role as the focal point for the Science-Policy Interface Platform of the UN Major Group for Children & Youth, which provides a platform for youth to engage and discuss intergovernmental and allied policy processes at the UN.

Provide independent scientific advice.

Dr. Teresa Stoepler will discuss her work with the InterAcademy Partnership, a global network of academies, where she serves as Executive Director of the Policy branch. The InterAcademy Partnership mobilizes the world’s leading experts to advise international organizations and national governments on global challenges.

Serve on advisory boards.

Alex Godoy-Faúndez is director of a sustainability research center but he’ll tell you why he also carves out time to serve as a member of advisory boards to international organizations that address pressing policy issues related to sustainability, food security, and nutrition.

Join the Science Alliance for this short webinar to see how you can contribute your scientific expertise on a global scale!
