Sister Cities not only fosters

bonds between Salisbury and
towns half a world away, it promotes a deep appreciation of
other cultures and a greater
recognition of our own. From a
students perspective, Sister Cities
has allowed me to look beyond
the comfort limits of our own
community and discover similarities and differences with international cities in an ever-changing
world. There is no doubt that
Sister Cities puts Salisbury on the
world map while simultaneously
bringing the world to our doorsteps.
Derek Wu
Sister Cities provides formal and
informal connections between
people in our community and
people in Salisbury, England;
Tartu, Estonia; Dalian, China and
beyond. We formally exchange
education, arts, culture, business
ideas and informally build lasting
relationships and friendships.
