Sister Cities Technological Exchange event September 30th!

Please join us this Friday, September 30th, at UW-Milwaukee (Wisconsin Room Lounge) from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for the Sister Cities Technological Exchange event!
The Consulate of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Milwaukee-Carora Sister Cities Committee invites you to collaborate on an exciting new initiative.  As part of the Sister Cities agreement between Milwaukee and Carora, Venezuela, the initiative aims to facilitate transnational economic cooperation with a focus on fortifying community-led partnerships.  We hope to harness the technology, knowledge base, and skill sets unique to each community to build productive relationships between partners in our Sister Cities!  (see attached invitation, agenda, and flyer)
If you are interested in the cooperative/fair trade movement in Venezuela, this event is for you!
If you are part of a small business, community org, or cooperative, this event is especially for you!  We hope to pair your group with another in Milwaukee’s Sister City and begin to build a productive economic, cultural, and personal relationship!
