For the past 12 years, students from the University of Sheffield have taken part in an annual exchange with the students in Sheffield’s twin town of Esteli.

This is one example of the many twinning activities with Nicaragua that take place in 12 towns and communities in the UK. These twinnings take many forms: towns, universities, hospitals, trade unions, schools, community theatre groups, and even toilets!

On 11 February, representatives from these groups will be meeting in London to exchange ideas and experiences, identify areas where we can work together, and celebrate the diversity of UK – Nicaragua twinning links.
