Can plastic be social? Yes, says Gerhard Bär in his TEDxBonn talk
On June 20th, the UN celebrated 20 years in Bonn. 20 years ago Haus Carstanjen was handed over to the UN by the German government. The presence of the United Nations Volunteers programme (UNV), the Climate Change Secretariat (UNFCCC) and other UN agencies marked the starting point for Bonn to become a UN center for sustainable development later on. Today, UN Bonn - with 19 organizations and about 1,000 staff members - is here to help governments and people find answers and ways for humanity to achieve a sustainable future on this planet.Through advocacy, capacity building and action in the fields of climate change, land degradation, biodiversity and ecosystem services, wildlife conservation, volunteerism, health, human security, disaster risk reduction, tourism, as well as education and training, UN Bonn works towards a world where all have the chance to live decent lives, now and in the future.
TEDxBonn is proud to have been part of the celebrations!
