Partner Event

Global Action – Local Interaction

23 June 2021
17:30 - 19:00

Working from Bonn side-by-side with the United Nations (UN), the BINGOs, the Bonn International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are adding content and increasing the impact of Bonn as an important hub for global issues. Sustainable urban development, sustainable forestry and agriculture, Paralympic sports or sustainable energy: the range of topics is diverse, while all are pursuing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

In the light of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, our event in the context of #UNBonn25 will address sustainable landscapes, agriculture and fair consumption. By showcasing the goals and work of three exemplary organizations, the links between landscape, agriculture and fair consumption are highlighted. And, because the BINGOs are well connected locally, options to engage are manifold.

With interviews and contributions by:

  • Tina Birmpili, Deputy Executive Secretary, United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
  • Melissa Duncan, Executive Director, Fairtrade International
  • John Colmey, Managing Director, Global Landscapes Forum, CIFOR-ICRAF
  • Thomas Cierpka, Senior Manager, IFOAM – Organics International
