Annual partnerships.

Bonn’s annual partner organization 2019 is the tropical forest foundation "Oro Verde", which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The foundation combines the themes of biodiversity, climate protection and poverty reduction, which are also characteristic of Bonn as an international location.

Oro Verde was founded in 1989 by renowned personalities from business and the natural sciences and has been committed to protecting the world's tropical forests ever since.

With a colourful programme of events, Oro Verde will make it possible to experience the tropical forests with their diversity of species and their surprisingly close connection to our everyday lives. Because the rainforests are not only important to us as huge CO2 reservoirs. The rainforest is also present in our everyday lives in the form of chocolate, coffee, paper or soya and meat. Rainforest live in Bonn: All Bonn citizens are invited to become discoverers of the rainforest in their city.
