UN Summer Academy: Localizing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

You may still register for the upcoming 6th UN Summer Academy, taking place in Bonn from 21 to 25 August. The academy is organized by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development. This highly successful annual event was held in Bonn for the first time in 2016.


The UN Summer Academy is intended for practitioners, policy makers and researchers working on furthering the core notions of sustainable development, as well as those actively engaged with the UN system in their daily lives. The 2017 edition of the Summer Academy will focus on ways to implement the 2030 Agenda at national, regional and local level, examining the particular role of cities and local authorities in the process.

Leveraging the presence of 19 UN entities in Bonn, as well as numerous leading institutions in international development, the academy provides an unprecedented opportunity for dialogue with thought leaders who are currently guiding and inspiring the work of the UN.
A Share Fair is organized as part of the academy, which brings together various German and regional actors and initiatives across different sectors, and showcases the diversity of programmatic approaches and practices, while fostering networking and collaboration.
As a special feature in 2017, the City of Bonn will present its unique project partnerships with cities around the world, strengthening local implementation of sustainability principles and climate partnerships. During an excursion in the wider region, participants will explore local projects, which combine social, economic and environmental considerations in an exemplary way.
