Welcome to International Newcastle

International Newcastle supports the extraordinary wealth of international experience, knowledge and understanding found in our city today: from the communities that make our city their home, to the businesses that trade across international borders, from the work we do to connect our cities to other cities around the world, to the joint research we undertake to foster healthier, fairer and safer communities.
