    About the Bonn Dialogues

    The “Bonn Dialogues on Global Environmental Change” are a series of events focusing on substantive issues related to anthropogenic drivers and consequences of Global Environmental Change and Human Security. They address, in a cross-cutting manner, sector-specific themes such as climate, water, energy or food.

    The Dialogue Series aims to:

    • raise public awareness of different aspects of Global Environmental Change;
    • serve as a forum for interdisciplinary multi-stakeholder exchanges of views;
    • contribute to different scientific, political and public discourses; and
    • present Bonn as a host of various organizations dealing with cooperation, sustainable development and environmental concerns.

    The Bonn Dialogues Series takes place twice a year. It is jointly organized by UNU Bonn and the German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV) in partnership with the City of Bonn. The Bonn Dialogues are supported by Deutsche Welle, the European Union and the federal government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
