The Portland Bologna Sister City Association is a volunteer organization that stimulates and celebrates the relationship between our two cities. It was founded in 2004 and since then PBSCA has raised awareness and inspired and supported cultural, academic and person-to-person exchange between our cities. Bologna, Italy is Portland Oregon's first and only European sister city. We have found, over the years, a great and undeniable synergy between our cities. Priorities like well-planned urban areas, public transportation, e-goverance and sustainability have been driven by our compatibility. We share the acknowledgement of the important role of the large urban university. We have a vibrant Youth Exhange program between our two cities. Through free monthly presentations Portlanders learn more about our sister city and its environs. There are many projects that we simply cannot afford to undertake, like food, music and theatre exchanges. Our hopes are that with greater understanding of our ties that we can continue to expand our connection ina real and meaningful manner.
