Goodbye Climate Planet!




We want to thank all visitors of Climate Planet in Bonn for their interest.

WHAT IS CLIMATE PLANET?

Climate Planet is the world’s biggest replica of the Earth. It was developed by the Danish NGO Global Citizen as an installation for the European Capital of Culture 2017, Aarhus (Denmark), during the summer months.

Inside Climate Planet you can watch a film presented on a 360° screen. The film explains climate change and its consequences, providing the audience with a unique insight into the impact of climate change on our planet.

The idea behind Climate Planet comes from the entrepreneur Henrik Rud, who created the project together with his team. Climate Planet is a non-profit initiative and a unique communication platform for everyone who wants to campaign for a sustainable world.

YOUR GATEWAY TO THE CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE

In November 2017, over 20,000 climate experts, diplomats and politicians from all over the world are meeting in Bonn for the 23rd Climate Change Conference.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), together with the City of Bonn and supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, presents Climate Planet. This is the first time that this huge walk-in globe has been brought to Germany. It is open to all, and it is your gateway to the Climate Change Conference.

Step right inside the Earth and learn all about our climate. The highlight within is a 360° screen shaped like the Earth on which a 40-minute film is shown that explains the global climate. Here you will discover the impact climate change is having on our blue planet and also what climate change means for you personally.

Germany is one of the forerunners in international climate policy. German development policy plays a key role here.

In an interactive exhibition set up in the covered area around Climate Planet you can discover how climate change is affecting the lives of many people, and how we can meet these challenges. Tangible examples illustrate how important and effective development policy is in the fight against climate change and its consequences: climate policy and development policy belong together.

A range of events is planned where you can meet with experts, practitioners and politicians, and have the chance to discuss fascinating questions around climate change and development with them.

Climate Planet is freely accessible to the public. On weekday mornings, Climate Planet is reserved for school classes that have booked in advance. More information with the exact times for the film show can be found here:

Assembling Climate Planet

Uniting for climate action

Climate protection – a global responsibility

Global warming is already a threat for many people today. The increasing number and intensity of extreme weather situations is making life more difficult in many different parts of the world, and poor countries suffer the most. The BMZ supports these countries in their efforts to adapt to climate change and move development within local economies and society in a more sustainable and climate-friendly direction. Climate action is not just about preserving the potential for development, it also creates new opportunities for growth, employment and poverty reduction. Inside Climate Planet and in the on-site exhibition, you can see just what German development policy is doing to support people all over the world in their fight to protect the climate and adapt to climate change.


Climate meets Development

The 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) takes place under the presidency of Fiji. Much of the focus will be on the interests of small island states, which are strongly affected by climate change. Adapting to climate change and resilience against global warming are some of the most important themes of the conference. The BMZ plays a crucial role, contributing ideas for sustainable solutions – because climate change and development are inextricably linked.

BMZ COP23 Website >

The Song for COP23

To mark the 23rd Climate Change Conference, German electro-pop musician Bernadette Hengst (www.lahengst.com) has composed the song “I’m an Island”. She was asked to do this by the festival Save the World/Theater Bonn. The song is a declaration of love to our planet and an appeal for more solidarity and joint action against climate change. “I’m an Island” – the song of the Climate Change Conference.
