International cooperation ranks high also in the activities of the City of Bonn itself. The City is a member of numerous city networks, European associations, panels and city twinnings. It is involved in international development cooperation on the municipal level, international youth projects and in the international dialogue of cultures.
Bonn’s citizens work for international cooperation in many associations, clubs and societies.
Sustainability is topical everywhere: institutions of science and research, companies working on a global scale, non-governmental organisations, and federal and international institutions and agencies cooperate in a dense network at their common working place Bonn, when the focus is on the economic, ecological or social aspects of sustainable development. Also the Bonn-based UN Secretariats, most of which were created following the Earth Summit of Rio de Janeiro, focus their activities on the issue of "Sustainable Development”.
The Bonn Sustainability Portal presents knowledge about sustainability generated in Bonn, links actors in the field of sustainability and thereby highlights the potential of Bonn in this realm.
