Twinning between associations

In 1989 a twinning agreement was concluded between the Catalan and the Flemish associations for industrial archaeology. Since then both associations work together in multiple fields, they exchange information and ideas - and they learn from each other. In 2009 the Flemish went on visit to Catalonia, in 2010 the Catalans visited Flanders. Members of both associations became friends - and some Flemish industrial archaeologists even started to learn Catalan...
The experience of this twinning was proven to be advantageous and useful for both partners.

Why not extend the idea and promote similar twinning between other associations - thus laying the foundations of small scale and friendly international co-operation.

During the 2011 meeting in Tilburg the draft of a twinning charter was proposed.
Are there any associations now looking for twinning partners ?
