"Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research" founded
Just as representatives from all over the world gathered in Bonn for the UN World Climate Change Conference (COP23), the "Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research" was founded under the auspices of the University of Bonn. Among others, the “Institute for Environment and Human Security of the United Nations University” (UNU-EHS), which is headquartered in Bonn, was crucially involved in the process.
While scientists from the University of Bonn together with other experts discussed climate protection at COP23, the signing ceremony of the agreement took place on November 15th within the framework of the Climate Conference. The signatories emphasized that sustainability research in science is based on outstanding universities, strong research institutes, global networks and a successful interaction with the UN City of Bonn.
