The California Japan Sister Cities 2021 Spring Workshop was held as an online event for all cities in California and Japan. The theme was “Citizen Diplomacy through Technology and Innovation” and heavily featured our Connect the World program. Comments from the Consuls General from the San Francisco and Los Angeles Consulates General of Japan, as well as the California State Senate President Pro Tem, Toni Atkins. A special presentation from the San Diego Yokohama Sister Cities Society focused on their many successes with virtual exchanges and events since the pandemic began, and how other sister city programs could implement similar programs. As part of the event, CJSCN received a Consul General’s Commendation from Consul General Maeda of San Francisco for our work. We are very grateful for this support.
