About Bonn Dialogues
"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 - addressing 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. Furthermore, Bonn Dialogues is supported by Deutsche Welle,
the European Union and the federal government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
