The UN Summer Academy 2016 is titled “Shaping a Sustainable Future”. The UN Summer Academy prides itself on offering executive education, learning and knowledge exchange to those actively engaged with the UN system in their daily lives. The 2016 edition of the Summer School will focus on the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, including the Sustainable Development Goals, along with the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The academy combines academic rigour with cutting edge thinking, builds on a renowned faculty and is one of the few UN learning events open to UN staff, civil society and private sector representatives alike, as well as a select number of post-graduate students and young professionals, interested in further pursuing opportunities in the field of sustainable development. The UN Summer Academy offers an engaging five-day programme, ensuring rich interaction between peers and faculty, participation in solution-oriented practical clinics, and discussions on issues of relevance to the work of the United Nations and its partners in the context of the 2030 Agenda.

Drawing on the presence of 19 UN entities in Bonn, as well as numerous leading institutions in international development, the academy will also provide an exclusive opportunity for dialogue with professionals working towards the implementation of Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement on a daily basis and highlight opportunities for action at different levels.
