History and Location in Bonn
The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training was established as a result of a decision taken by the UNESCO General Conference in 1999. In 2000, UNESCO and the Government of Germany signed an agreement for the hosting of the Centre in Bonn, Germany. The inauguration ceremony took place in April 2002.
United Nations Campus in Bonn
In February 2002, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan signed a contract to develop Bonn further to become a UN city. The former governmental and parliamentary quarter in Bonn is currently converted into a UN Campus, which also includes an international conference centre.
In June 2005, 11 UN agencies located in Bonn moved to the historic parliamentary building “Langer Eugen”. Use of the premises has generously been granted free of charge by the German Government.
