Dear Friend of Bonn,

Here comes the first edition of our International Newsletter in 2019. We hope you will enjoy reading a little about what’s on in Bonn.

The Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals are again very much in the focus of our activities this year. Global issues under discussion in Bonn will include climate change, climate action and resilience of our cities, but also other topical issues like global power shifts or the promotion of international Paralympic sports, for instance. We invite you to take a closer look at Bonn’s conference highlights coming up in the course of the year, such as the large international Resilient Cities conference or the Global Festival of Action organized by the Bonn-based UN SDG Action Campaign.

We take pride in our international conferences and debates of future-oriented issues, especially in the field of sustainability. And we take pride in our growing UN Bonn family and in the large number of resident international organizations in Bonn. The twentieth UN entity in Bonn and latest Bonn UN family member as of 2018 is the network of UN organizations OneHR offering consolidated services and transparency for HR within the UN System.

Happy 25th Anniversary, FSC!

Happy 25th Anniversary, FSC!

Did you know that the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is headquartered in Bonn? You have probably spotted the organization's famous "checkmark and tree" eco-label on your milk packaging or the back of your Deutsche Bahn ticket - but you may not know what it means. The international not-for-profit organization sets the standards to certify responsibly managed forests. When you buy a product bearing the FSC logo, rest assured it can be traced to a responsibly managed forest. FSC celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and the city of Bonn has played a major role in the history of the organization, and supported FSC in the fight for responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC Director General, Kim Carstensen, tells us more about FSC’s connection with its adopted city.
