Applications for the COP23 cultural events in Bonn, Germany, will close this Saturday.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change website has issued a statement opening the applications for cultural events during the Conference of Parties (COP23), which will be held from November 6 to 17.

It stated the UNFCCC Secretariat, as the host of the conference and Bonn, were supporting communication and visibility for the programme organisers of cultural and other events taking place across the city outside the conference venue.

“Organisers providing their event information will if eligible get a free entry in the event calendars of the city of Bonn and of the UNFCCC. Events and programmes with a special focus on culture, climate action, climate education, sustainable development goal (SDG) promotion and awareness raising shall be entitled to display an official logo linked to COP23 in their event calendar entries and communications,” it said.

“For this reason, applications will go through a joint approval process. Organisers of cultural and other events before, during and after COP23 are invited to register their events and programmes until July 15.

“Positive decisions to endorse applications will be communicated to applicants between July 31 and August 15.

“Negative decisions will not be communicated and decisions taken will be final. Neither funding nor logistical support is linked to an endorsement.

“Please note that this call applies to events happening across the city of Bonn outside the conference zones.

“Events inside the conference zones (Bonn Zone) will go through a separate process of application and registration between July 18 and 21, 2017 via the UNFCCC website.”
