UN Events

The work and goals of the United Nations are always present in Bonn - through international conferences as well as through many events and forms of cooperation with local partners - from the honorary award for civic engagement to the joint Master's program of Bonn University and United Nations University.

The City of Bonn supports the work of the United Nations with regular event formats. In addition, many other players offer regular events on current topics.

United Nations Day

As the headquarters of United Nations organizations, Bonn has hosted a "United Nations Birthday Party" on a Saturday in October every year since 1996. The Charter of the United Nations was ratified on 24 October 1945. United Nations Day brings the work of UN Bonn to the people. Traditionally, many institutions active in Bonn introduce themselves in a tent city, providing information on a common theme and inviting people to become involved. Since 2015, the United Nations Days have been dedicated to Sustainable Development Goals.
