Mission

We are a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network creating and strengthening partnerships between Seattle and Nantes in an effort to increase global cooperation at the municipal level, promote cultural understanding, and stimulate economic development.

We motivate and empower private citizens, municipal officials, and business leaders to conduct long-term programs of mutual benefit.

 

Our goals are:

  • The development of people-to-people relationships between the citizens of Seattle and Nantes that encourage understanding one another as individuals, as members of the community, and as citizens of the global community.

  • The development of activities and programs through which communities will creatively learn, work and solve problems together through reciprocal cultural, educational, municipal, business, professional, and technical exchanges and projects.

  • Participation as an organization in promoting, fostering, and publicizing state and national programs that foster and promote friendly relations and mutual understanding between the peoples of Seattle and Nantes.
