The "Foundation for International Dialogue of the Sparkasse in Bonn" was launched in 2005 in order to promote international discussion and foster cooperation in the Federal and UN city of Bonn. Bonn is an international and cosmopolitan city and thus has a unique position amongst other German cities. The city and the region of Bonn therefore have the best potential to become a place for international dialogue.
Some of the Foundation's aims are to promote
- international understanding,
- development cooperation,
- european integration and
- study and research in the fi elds of international politics and history.
Events and congresses
The Foundation intends to achieve its aims by promoting intercultural and interpersonal dialogue. It does so by supporting international events and congresses, or by staging such events itself. Furthermore, the Foundation provides support for the activities of institutions and associations which are committed to work for international understanding and intercultural dialogue. In so doing, a contribution can be made and citizens can be encouraged to get involved.
