Bonn Global Festival of Action to help drive sustainability


Sustainability experts from around the world are gathering in Bonn 21-23 March to discuss ways to take action on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the “Global Goals”, including action on climate change.
With global issues such as population growth, rapid urbanization, food insecurity, water scarcity and increased competition for resources globally fuelling tensions and instability, experts attending the Global Festival of Action will be looking at interlinkages between the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate Change Agreement as the means to build a sustainable future for all.
“By looking at climate and sustainability holistically, we maximize the potential for positive outcomes of every action we take. And when international commitments are turned into country-level action, tangible benefits are delivered to communities and the people who live there,” said Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change.
The around 1000 participants from 150 countries attending the festival will be able to connect with partner organizations, exchange ideas, build partnerships, and ensure that solutions are transported across borders.
