The second Asia conference of Engagement Global’s Service Agency “Communities in One World” took place in Bonn from 19 to 21 June 2017 with around 90 representatives of local administrations and civil society. The conference was organized in cooperation with the Federal City of Bonn. Along with many stakeholders from Germany, there were 30 participants from seven Asian countries: Indonesia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Georgia, the Philippines, and India.
Berlin, too, took part in the conference with its partner city Jakarta and the Berlin boroughs Lichtenberg and Marzahn-Hellersdorf, which maintain partnerships with Vietnamese boroughs. The conference also gave Berlin and Jakarta the chance to discuss some preliminary ideas for celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2019.
