Cornerstone II: Exchange

Bonn Dialogues (In person)

3-5 June 2024 

Held alongside the annual UNFCCC Bonn Climate Conference, this in-person event convenes key actors in the urban climate space. Through our three-day power-packed agenda, we’re leading the implementation of historic COP28 UAE outcomes on multilevel climate action and linking the climate agenda to sustainable urbanization.

Significant milestones will shape this year’s Daring Cities Bonn Dialogues. Our CHAMP Endorsers Roundtable will gather endorsers, UNFCCC leaders, and strategic partners to guide CHAMP implementation toward COP30. Plus, our Plenary on Multilevel Action will feature the first-ever joint public dialogue with COP28 and COP29 High-Level Champions, UN and national leaders, CHAMP endorsers, and mayors. Further discussions will focus on NDCs, just transitions, the upcoming IPCC Report on Cities and Climate, and fostering synergies between climate, nature, and land.

The Daring Cities’ offer for local and regional government policy advisors, planning officials, national government policy advisors, and other technical experts throughout August to October 2024 consists of a series of virtual offerings and training workshops, emphasizing the theme of addressing the climate emergency through integrated and holistic solutions. The Virtual Forum is dedicated to exploring interconnected factors such as food and nature, within urban policies to ensure comprehensive outcomes for society and the planet. In addition, we will spotlight Town Hall COPs as an innovative mechanism linking climate emergency action to national and global efforts.
