Fort Worth Looking to Create French and Canadian Partnerships
FORT WORTH, TX – Sister Cities launches search
Fort Worth Sister Cities International has launched a long-range plan to select two new sister cities in countries where they can build mutually beneficial relationships through education, exchanges and commerce. Countries currently being considered are Canada and France.
“Our goal is to promote Fort Worth globally and enrich our local community creating a more peaceful and prosperous world for all. We find that important now more than ever,” said Johnny Campbell, board chairman and CEO of Sundance Square.
Sister Cities is exploring potential partnerships with the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada and Nimes, France. Calgary currently boasts a population of 1.4 million and is one of Canada’s most ethnically diverse cities. Nimes is smaller with a population of 142, 205 but has a rich history dating back 2000 years.
Sister Cities will be staging a luncheon and conversation with the French Consul General based in Houston, as well as local experts on international partnerships, to discuss the possible relationship with Nimes, France. The luncheon will be held February 23 noon in the TCU Dee Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center and ticket information is available by calling 817/632-7100 or online at http://www.fwsistercities.org/event/new-sister-city-discussion/.
Anyone interested in learning more about this possible connection with France or Fort Worth Sister Cities is invited to join the conversation. Tickets are available for purchase until February 17.
