Waterloo Youth Exchange

The cities of Waterloo and Nagakute (Aichi prefecture), both having ancient battlefields, signed the Sister Ancient Battlefield Agreement in 1992. Since then, the two cities have been organizing mutual youth exchanges once every two years. This year as well, on August 23, a group of 20 junior high school students from Nagakute arrived in Waterloo, where a welcome reception was held by Waterloo Mayor Reuter in attendance of Ms. Ikoma. The students will be participating in the exchange with a homestay in Waterloo until August 28, while visiting some of Belgium’s major cities and ancient battlefield ruins.
