A Conversation Between Austin and Koblenz

The Austin-Koblenz sister city relationship was established in 1992. The partnership connects citizens through a variety of cultural and economic exchanges and has had a strong focus on education and workforce development. On December 11, the ACG hosted a discussion with Mayor Steve Adler of Austin and Lord Mayor David Langner of Koblenz on the current issues confronting their respective communities, workforce preparedness, and how they are preparing for the future.

This virtual event was part of the American Council on Germany’s new series titled [virtual] Transatlantic Town Halls: German-American Mayors Forum, held under the auspices of WunderbarTogether USA 2020, a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
