A Conversation Between San Antonio and Darmstadt

In 2017, San Antonio and Darmstadt established a sister city partnership to promote economic collaboration and to strengthen cooperation on a host of issues including innovative urban development, sustainable and renewable energy, and start-ups and entrepreneurial development.

On November 18, the ACG hosted a conversation between Ron Nirenberg, Mayor of San Antonio, and Jochen Partsch, Lord Mayor of Darmstadt. The two discussed the vibrant relationship which has developed between their cities and how they are collaborating on issues such as cybersecurity, urban development, and smart cities.

This event is part of a series of [virtual] Transatlantic Town Halls: German-American Mayors Forum, which is held under the auspices of Wunderbar Together USA 2020, a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
