The Boulder-Nablus Sister City Project fosters relationships through cultural, educational and professional exchanges, inspiring lifelong friendships that promote understanding and peace through person-to-person “citizen diplomacy.” 

Some ongoing projects that endeavor to connect residents of both cities are: 

  • Early Readers Program — Supporting publishing of Palestinian children’s stories

  • Student to Student Pen Pal — engaging classes of students to get to know each other through pairing with same-aged students in each city

  • Yoga Teacher Training — training yoga teachers in Nablus

  • Exchanges — hosting visitors from Nablus and bringing delegations to Nablus to build professional and personal relationships and areas of collaboration and partnership

  • Volunteering — supporting students and other Boulderites to offer community service in Nablus

  • And more, there is much discussion of additional projects and we welcome your involvement and input, please join us!
