Welcome to WorldBoston, a convener on international topics affecting Boston and the world since 1949.


The mission of WorldBoston is to foster engagement in international affairs and cooperation with peoples of all nations.  As globalization increasingly shapes every aspect of life on our planet, so does our Greater Boston region increasingly experience, and even help shape, these global trends.

By means of our nationally-recognized global engagement and citizen diplomacy programs and our networking and community events, every year WorldBoston provides people from all over the world – and people right here – hundreds of opportunities for learning and connection. Our community includes professionals in every field, including government, business, media, education, science, and the arts; young people; and citizen diplomats.

It’s easy to get involved.  WorldBoston membership is the best way to be sure not to miss any WorldBoston news and events at discounted prices.  If you are interested in citizen diplomacy, we invite you to join our database of volunteers and home hospitality providers, and help us in creating unique people-to-people connections.  Finally, your donations and sponsorships provide critical support for the sustainability of our mission. Please explore our website or contact our office to learn more about these opportunities.
