World Climate Conference 2017
The world visited Bonn: Around 22,000 people from more than 190 countries took part in the 23rd World Climate Conference (COP 23) from 6 to 17 November 2017. The City of Bonn did not only support the World Climate Secretariat in the organizational set-up of the conference and the necessary infrastructure in cooperation with the Federal Government and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, but also made a large number of contributions of its own.
Together with the state of NRW, a Climate Summit of Cities and Regions took place with more than 1,000 participants. Its declaration supports the resolutions of COP 23 to initiate the next steps for climate protection before 2020 and calls for ambitious joint action.
The City of Bonn also accompanied the wide-ranging programme of events surrounding the World Climate Summit. There were cultural projects, art installations, lectures, workshops, exhibitions, city tours and many other events throughout the city.
