The Sister City initiative is based on the conviction that true understanding between nations begins with individual involvement. In our area, Sister City programs have been connecting communities, strengthening relationships, and creating international partnerships since 1986.

Through both official and unofficial delegation visits, Duluth Sister Cities International has created strong bonds with five international cities across three continents. Though the purpose may vary, ranging from recreation to professional partnerships, these visits aim to connect citizens from each country in a profound way: enabling education and growth for all parties involved.
