United Nations in Bonn: Shaping A Sustainable Future

Bonn has succeeded over the past decade to shape for itself a new profile as the German United Nations City and a centre of international dialogue on key issues of the future. A visible symbol of this development is the UN Campus.

The Campus provides to the UN organisations ideal working conditions and an environment rich in synergies. A special advantage is the close vicinity to the International Congress Centre and to many other important partners. Bonn provides an excellent environment for co-operative action and for short-cut contacts. UN organisations, Federal Ministries and Federal Agencies, about 150 non-governmental organisations, research institutions and the resident economic global players determine the character of Bonn as an international location. Increasingly, the City is turning into a hub whose actors focus on the issues of sustainable and humane development.
