Citizen Diplomacy International connects the international community and the people of Philadelphia, one person and one new friendship at a time.  We showcase the best of our region through international business, educational and cultural exchanges.  Through personal interactions, we promote mutual respect and understanding.

As citizen diplomats, we believe that personal interactions, from business meetings to shared meals, have an impact on how the United States is viewed around the world. We strive to create a friendly and welcoming environment that encourages open discussion and fosters the mutual understanding that we hope will lead to a more peaceful and prosperous world.

Join us and be an advocate for international exchange.
