A “One Conference, Two Zones” concept has been developed to manage the expected level of participation and events in an inclusive manner.
The Bula Zone will include plenary halls, meeting rooms for negotiations, delegation offices and media facilities and is comprised of the World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB), UN Campus facilities and temporary structures built in the immediate surroundings.
The Bula Zone will be open from Monday, 6 November until Friday, 17 November 2017, except Sunday, 12 November. Opening hours will be from 8:00 to 23:00 hrs. Offices for delegations will be accessible 24 hours, with reduced services on Sunday, 12 November, as well as during night times.
The Bonn Zone will be located in the adjacent Rheinaue Park and will accommodate climate action events including high-level events, side events, exhibits and media activities as well as delegation pavilions.
The Bonn Zone will be open from Monday, 6 November until Friday, 17 November 2017, including Sunday, 12 November, from 8:00 to 22:00 hrs.
The two zones will be well connected through bus lines with enhanced service. Participants can also travel between the entrance to the Bula Zone behind the delegation offices and the Media Centre and the side entrance to the Bonn Zone using a special shuttle service on a 1.4 km long road in the Rheinaue Park. The shuttle service will rely on emission-free vehicles. In addition, bicycles will be available free of charge for travel between the zones.
Participants with Bula Zone badges are strongly urged to use the special shuttle service or the supplied bicycles for faster access to the Bonn Zone via its side entrance.
