UNCCD is partnering with the City of Bonn, Institut Francais, Willi Eichler Academy, DAAD, Deutsche Welle and others to bring the positive vibes back to Bonn for the third time. The city that hosts many international, non-governmental and development organizations provides an ideal venue for a global music event with its proximity of ideas, knowledge and enthusiasm for the "one world" concept. Over the Border 2018 is set to surpass last year's festival that attracted over 6 000 visitors and more than 70 artists from 14 countries. The festival will open at the University of Bonn to engage the younger audience and will present side events such as the "Homeland and Freedom" discussion.
