Bristol-Hannover Council played a leading role in organising an online regional twinning conference on behalf of Bristol International Twinnings Association on February 25th, a belated follow-up to the conference held in City Hall in September 2019. 49 delegates attended from a wide region encompassing Portsmouth, Devon, Worcestershire and Reading, and there was both great enthusiasm in the discussions on the day, and a lively response afterwards. People were stimulated by the ideas which came up in discussion groups after a year of exclusively online activity. Going forward as the lockdown eases, ideas included setting up local/regional umbrella groups, hosting cultural and linguistic events to include schools and other young people, involving young people in council matters, and most of all, increasing our use of social media in order to attract the younger generations. This latter aspect caused us to think we should have another conference after Easter, with social media as the main topic of discussion, to be led by a group of ‘media-savvy’ participants. Let us know if you would like to take part and play a role in the modernisation of our communications!
