About

Since 2009 the Bonn Sustainability Portal is part of Bonns widespread landscape of organizations working on sustainability issues. More than 250 Bonn-based national and international organizations address topics related to sustainable development through scientific research, policy implementation or by knowledge transfer. Additionally, the work of 19 UN agencies in Bonn is guided by the motto “shaping a sustainable future”. This local strength in promoting a sustainable future is reflected by our partners and associated partners. The portal is supported financially and editorially by its partners such as the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH or our associated partner the UNSSC Knowledge Center for Sustainable Development.

Objectives

The Bonn Sustainability Portal presents knowledge about sustainability generated in Bonn, links actors in the field of sustainability and thereby highlights the potential of Bonn in this realm. The portal promotes the scientific discourse as well as the dialogue between research and politics. Bonn-based organizations post relevant events, news, comments and announcements like e.g. job and training offers. Thus, the Bonn Sustainability Portal provides at once a forum as well as a contact and information network.
