What is a Sister City Organization?
A sister city organization is a volunteer group of
ordinary citizens who, with the support of their local elected officials, form long-term relationships with people and organizations in a city abroad. Each sister city organization is independent and pursues the activities and thematic areas that are important to them and their community including municipal, business, trade, educational and cultural exchanges with their sister city.
Sister city organizations promote peace through people-to-people relationships-with program offerings varying greatly from basic cultural exchange programs to shared research and development of projects between cities with relationships.
