New York State Sister Cities is a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network that creates and strengthens partnerships between New York State and international communities. We strive to build global cooperation at the municipal level, promote cultural understanding and stimulate economic development.
New York State Sister Cities and members are leaders for local community development and volunteer action. We motivate and empower private citizens, municipal officials and business leaders to conduct long-term sister city programs. We believe that sister city programs involve two-way communication and should mutually benefit partnering communities.
Our goals are to:
Develop municipal partnerships between New York State cities, counties, and states and similar jurisdictions in other nations.
Provide opportunities for city officials and citizens to experience and explore other cultures through long-term community partnerships.
Create an atmosphere in which economic and community development can be implemented and strengthened.
Stimulate environments through which communities will creatively learn, work, and solve problems together through reciprocal cultural, educational, municipal, business, professional and technical exchanges and projects.
Collaborate with organizations in the United States and other countries which share similar goals.
