Long Beach-Yokkaichi Sister City Association
In 2007 former Yokkaichi Mayor Tetsuo Inoue proposed that a delegation of Long Beach students travel to Yokkaichi to discuss environmental problems and solutions with students from Japan and China in cooperation with the Port of Long Beach and other environmental groups.
Each summer four students and a chaperone from Long Beach take part in this annual environmental summit.
Expenses, including round-trip airfare, are the responsibility of the students and chaperone. All applicants must have a current passport and have no visible tattoos.
Please contact Bonnie Stoeppelman, Environmental Chair with questions at Yokkaichi@SharpHOA.com or Bonnie@SharpHOA.com or 310-514-1377.
