The new German and English language infotainment offer will go online exactly on the day of the anniversary, Friday, September 25, 2020. It is one of the contributions of the City of Bonn to a global week of action for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, with which the Bonn-based UN Global SDG Action Campaign calls on people around the world to join in.
The 17 Goals are the connecting theme at the UN and the sustainability hub of Bonn as well as for the annual UN Day in Bonn. UN organizations, federal institutions, science, business and civil society are working together to make sustainability happen. The City of Bonn contributes on many levels - at the municipal level, above all, with its comprehensive Sustainability Strategy adopted in 2019.
The implementation of the 17 Goals in Bonn
Click on the quiz to find out interesting details about the implementation of Bonn's Sustainability Strategy - about mobility stations and their estimated emission savings, the Smart City or about Bonn's ranking in the digital world, about flowering meadows, environmental education programs, fair soccer balls or open all-day slots at Bonn's schools. At the same time, the quiz points to untapped potential, for example for solar energy on roofs, and to useful tools such as the Bonn Solar Roof Register.
In each topic area there is also a question for children from around seven years of age, because the implementation of the 17 Goals in Bonn thrives on the participation of everyone. That is why promoting the commitment of citizens and cooperation with civil society is an integral part of Bonn’s Sustainability Strategy. For example, the Committee for International and Scientific Affairs regularly awards funding to activists and initiatives that work to implement Agenda 2030 at local and international level. In 2020, nine initiatives and associations will receive funding.
In addition, the City of Bonn will soon be one of the first cities in Germany and worldwide to present its first Voluntary Local Review on the implementation of the 17 Goals at the municipal level. The report also underlines the central importance of cities in achieving the SDGs. It is scheduled to be presented in October as part of Daring Cities 2020, the digital forum for cities in climate emergency, which will be co-hosted by the City of Bonn.
Bonn's Sustainability Strategy is based on the SDGs
In 2016, Bonn was one of the first cities to sign the model declaration "Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development" of the German Association of Cities and Towns and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR). This was followed in 2019 by the adoption of the first Bonn Sustainability Strategy, which is based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs). The City of Bonn organizes - together with partners - events relating to the SDGs, such as the "Bonn SDG Days", and is committed to globally just and sustainable development within the framework of its project partnerships.
