The European and International Partnerships section at the Royal Borough of Kingston was created in the autumn of 2003 to reflect the growing importance attributed to international work and its benefits to the Royal Borough of Kingston.
The aim of Kingston’s European and International Partnerships programme is to develop meaningful international partnerships that provide real benefits to Kingston and its residents. These include community, school and youth links, cooperation between Council departments and staff exchanges as well as cooperation in transnational projects. European and International Partnerships also acts as the first port of call for international visitors and as an initial link to the ethnic communities in Kingston.
The unit provides information on opportunities for international cooperation and funding for these, as well as giving support for the inception and development of international projects, including searching for partners.
Kingston has established city links with Oldenburg in Germany and Gwanak-gu, Seoul in South Korea. Although Kingston is no longer officially linked with Delft in the Netherlands, links are still continuing with exchanges in swimming and fencing clubs. Links to other cities and countries have been established through being a partner in transnational projects and international work in the youth service and schools.
We are always interested to hear about other active links that exist through community, sports and other groups in Kingston.
