The Vermont Institute of Community and International Involvement (VICII) holds a forum on our Sister City relationship with Bilwi (Puerto Cabezas), Nicaragua based on mutual friendship, and on US foreign policy, as it relates to Nicaragua and Venezuela.
The forum includes photographer and teacher Dan Higgins, who has been involved with the Burlington/ Puerto Cabezas Sister City Program since its inception; he has made photographs and videos to connect with the social life of Puerto Cabezas, as well as to promote the sister city relationship in Vermont. Former Mayor Peter Clavelle promoted sister city relationships during his time as mayor, and has visited ‘Port’ many times and is currently on the board; he is also chair of the Vermont Council on World Affairs. Retired teacher Peter Lackowski, a friend of Bolivian Venezuela, travelled to Venezuela for the first time in 2005, and was drawn back six times, the last time in the very first days of 2020.
