Anniversary Special on 25 Years of UN Bonn

Dear Friend of Bonn,

2021 marks a special year for Bonn as Germany’s United Nations City. It has been 25 years since the United Nations Volunteers programme came to Bonn and Haus Carstanjen was officially handed over to former UN Secretray-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, in the presence of Angela Merkel, Federal Environment Minister at the time. 

This is the second special edition of our Bonn International News, which will go out to you around United Nations Day on 24 October, along with our warm congratulations and best wishes to UN Bonn: Happy 25th birthday!  

Again, we would like to take the opportunity to cast a brief spotlight on the numerous activities and highlights in the anniversary year. Enjoy and stay tuned!
