Working Together in Harmony

The goal of Greater Fort Lauderdale Sister Cities International is to develop municipal partnerships between  U.S. cities and states and similar jurisdictions in other nations.

GFLSCI is providing opportunities for city officials and citizens to experience and explore other cultures through long-term community partnerships.

GFLSCI is creating an atmosphere in which economic and community development can be implemented and strengthened. 

GFLSCI is stimulating environments through which communities will creatively learn, work, and solve problems together through reciprocal cultural, educational, municipal, professional and technical exchanges and projects.

Greater Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale and its surrounding towns known collectively as Greater Fort Lauderdale has become a favorite destination for families and couples, adding eclectic dining and upstanding cultural institutions to the natural beauty it has always possessed. Over 8 million people visit Greater Fort Lauderdale every year to cruise through the area's canal system, relax on its 23 miles of sparkling beaches, and patronize its wide variety of family attractions.
 

"I congratulate you for the volume of exchanges! You are the most active (sister cities) group in Florida! Keep up the great work!" - Cris Boehler, SCI Florida State Coordinator (2010)
