World Climate Conference (COP 23) in Bonn


The 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 23) took place in Bonn from 6 to 17 November 2017. The conference was organized by the Bonn-based UN Climate Secretariat (UNFCCC), with support rendered by the German Federal Government, the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the City of Bonn. The World Climate Conference took place at the World Conference Center Bonn and had been convened under the presidency of Fiji.

For the City of Bonn, this important conference will be a unique opportunity to present itself to the world as an international and cosmopolitan location, hub for sustainable development, top conference venue with state-of-the-art facilities and, finally, as birthplace of the famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

The City of Bonn gladly provides support to the United Nations and the Federal Government for the smooth organization and running of this very large conference. Approximately 25,000 participants from all over the world are expected to attend.

The City of Bonn and its partners are supporting the UNFCCC and the German Government in several fields, starting with the accommodation of the delegates in Bonn and the region as well as delegate services, information and transportation. The city is also supporting additional related meetings and events that will take up the key topics of the conference and reach out to the public by involving citizens, enterprises, NGOs, scientific institutions, churches or schools in Bonn. Special cultural offers will be a fine opportunity to point to Bonn’s special anniversary year in 2020, when the city will celebrate the 250th birthday of its most famous son, Ludwig van Beethoven.

All municipal activities are coordinated by the Department of International Affairs and Global Sustainability. Your support - for example as a volunteer during COP 23 - is highly welcome.
