For the past 45 years, Derby and Osnabrück have been twin cities and have sent young people from the respective city to work for 12 months as an ambassador, who is responsible for everything to do with the twinning. Since 2015, Derby was no longer able to host an ambassador from Osnabrück, however Osnabrück continues to host an ambassador from Derby.
A few of the ambassador’s duties include:
… And much more!
The town twinning provides a unique opportunity for you to personally benefit from the cultural exchange between the two cities and get to know people from the respective partner city. Moreover, it could also help if you would like to improve your English or German!
Whether it be a plan to visit the partner city, a wish to set up an exchange or an idea to do with the partnership, get in touch with the Derby ambassador regarding anything to do with the town twinning.
