Citizens within the twinning


All along the year, the twinning lives through activities initiated by local sport and culture associations, schools at all levels, in a close relationship to their counterparts of Wolfenbüttel district.


These activities and events are subsidized by Cachan city and the CRIJ.
The CRIJ's support is financial and/or logistic.


The CRIJ organizes with the Wolfenbüttel district a yearly exchange of schoolboys and girls aged ~11 during which about 30 Cachan pupils may discover the beautiful old city
of Wolfenbüttel and its surroundings, and welcome 2 months later their german counterparts, allowing them
to discover Cachan and the Paris key spots.


Every summer as well, Cachan city and 3 european cities organize a summer camp, during which youngsters aged 16~20 are cooperating on a common social theme and
enjoy leisure all together.
