As we approach the end of 2023, I am filled with gratitude for your support and partnership with the San Diego Diplomacy Council. Your commitment to connecting global changemakers, bridging San Diego with the world, nurturing the next generation of global leaders, and fostering peace has been the driving force behind our success.
Reflecting on the past year, we can’t help but marvel at the incredible milestones and accomplishments achieved with your generous support. Here are some highlights from 2023:
Global Changemakers Unite: Your contributions enabled us to host over 500 influential leaders and changemakers from over 110 countries in San Diego, fostering dialogue that transcends cultural and geographical boundaries. Our social influencers from South Korea got hugs and signed baseballs from the San Diego Padres and helped San Diego to gain greater positive exposure from their millions of social media followers globally. Our wheelchair basketball players from Romania taught wheelchair basketball to kids and adults, helping to build a more inclusive world. Our subnational diplomats from Japan shared best practices for combatting climate change and implementing local sustainable energy solutions in California.
San Diego on the World Stage: Our efforts have elevated San Diego’s profile globally, showcasing our City as a hub for innovation, collaboration, and cultural exchange while exporting the best ideas from San Diego to help make a greater global impact.
Next-Generation Leaders Empowered: Thanks to your support, we have provided invaluable training and engagement opportunities for the next generation of global leaders, equipping San Diego youth with the skills and perspectives necessary to navigate an interconnected world through our hands-on internship program and our Global Leadership Youth Programs.
As we enter our 45th year serving San Diego, we celebrate these achievements and look excitedly towards the future with optimism and determination. The challenges facing our world require continuous effort, and your continued support is vital to sustaining and expanding our impact.
We hope that you will consider making a special year-end gift to the San Diego Diplomacy Council. Your contribution will ensure that we can continue to connect, engage, and inspire positive change in San Diego and the world for another 45 years.
