Urban planners, architects, environmental experts, and civil society leaders representing 21 countries will be in Cleveland to explore how local government and community organizations are advancing sustainability. Visitors will experience a case study in how Northeast Ohio is working to improve environmental resiliency through collaboration in order to promote a green city on a blue lake.
International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders, we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
