Climate Action

EU side events at COP 23

06/11/2017 - 17/11/2017

The Pavilion of the European Union will host a series of side events during the COP23 in Bonn, in order to stimulate the debate on key thematic areas, engage observers and facilitate the dialogue with party delegates and other participants.


The application period is now open. The deadline for submitting your application is 18 August 2017 at 17.00 Central European Time (CET).


Side events are located within the conference venue, in the zone "Bonn", dedicated to climate action events, media events and exhibits. Therefore, all organisers/participants must be duly registered through a Party or an Observer organization and in possession of a conference badge relevant for the zone "Bonn" in order to be granted access to the conference venue. The European Commission is not able to provide accreditation, except on specific cases.

No accreditation for the "Bula" zone (plenary rooms, negotiation and delegation offices) will be provided.


Applications received by the deadline will be assessed according to their relevance, international dimension and overall quality. Late applications will be put in a reserve list.

In case the number of applications exceeds the number of available slots only one application per Party/Observer organization will be considered. The European Union may also ask applicants to combine their application with others into a single event.

The selection outcome and the provisional slot of successful applicants will be communicated in the first half of October.


  • Side events are free of charge.
  • The duration of one side event slot is 90 minutes.
  • Catering will be available on a commercial basis and the contact details will be provided in due course.
  • The provisional and final programme will be published on this website
  • Further information will be communicated closer to the conference date.
