Sister Cities aims to foster cross-border communications – a mutual exchange of ideas, people, and materials in a range of cultural, educational, youth, sports, municipal, professional, and technical projects.
The Sister Cities concept is unique:
It is two-way; the give and take is shared by both sides, and provides for structured, continuous contact between the cities and citizens involved.
It brings together the volunteer resources of each pair of sister cities.
It offers a mechanism at the community level for any person or organisation to become involved in the field of international relations.
The establishment of sister city friendships stimulates interaction between people of different cultures and countries on a people-to-people basis.
Our aim is to foster international understanding and friendship, in order to encourage an exchange of education and culture, and where possible, even tourism and trade as catalysts for mutual economic growth.
