Special anniversary edition on 25 years of UN in Bonn

Dear Friend of Bonn,

June 20, 1996 was a historic moment for Germany and Bonn. With the arrival of the United Nations Volunteers programme and the handover of Haus Carstanjen in the presence of the then Federal Environment Minister Angela Merkel to the acting UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the success story of the city on the Rhine as German UN City and center for Sustainable Development began.

In this special edition of our Bonn International Newsletter, which will go out to you on the 25th anniversary of the UN City of Bonn, we would like to offer a look at the activities and events that are taking place in the anniversary year.


Further information on the UN in Bonn is available on the city's homepage at (opens in a new tab) , on the UN Bonn website at (opens in a new tab), and in a current flyer from the Federal Foreign Office entitled "Bonn - Center for International Cooperation, Sustainable Development and Innovation," which can be downloaded at (opens in a new tab).

The Federal Foreign Office has also produced a  special image trailer (opens in a new tab) on the UN location.
