Greater Columbus Sister Cities International (GCSCI) is excited to announce the launch of three Pilot Sister City Committees focused on supporting our relationships with

Hefei, China; Curitiba, Brazil; and Accra, Ghana

These Committees will further our organization’s goals of increasing community involvement, fostering greater international exchange, and growing the global reputation of the Greater Columbus region.

 

The Committees will work to establish the founding practices and guidelines for all future Sister City Committees. The pilot period for these Committees will end on October 1, 2015 with the election of Committee Chairs and Vice-Chairs.

 

Whether you are interested in helping us shape a game-changing central Ohio organization focused on international engagement, or you are interested in supporting exchanges with one of our Sister Cities, please contact us through our Sister City Pilot Committee Chairs below.

A Message from the Mayor of Columbus...

On behalf of the City of Columbus, I would like to welcome you to the Greater Columbus Sister Cities International website.

Columbus values its sister cities relationships, because it is one more tool to expand our borders, our trade opportunities, our experiences and our world. We strive to create mutually beneficial relationships with our sister cities, facilitating economic, cultural and educational exchanges that strengthen our cities and broaden the horizons of our citizens.

Columbus has a very diverse population, and that diversity is reflected in our sister city connections throughout the world. Because of the diversity of our arts, culture, economy and neighborhoods, our city is part of a global community.

Mayor Michael B. Coleman,
Honorary Board Chair
