WHAT IS GLOBAL INITIATIVES WEEK?

Global Initiatives Week is a week-long celebration of the Coulee Region’s global connections. It showcases the cultural, social and economic value of our community through a variety of activities held during the week, including dance, art, film, speakers and more.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Global Initiatives Week encourages us as individuals and organizations to become a community with a deep sense of global responsibility and engagement.

The diverse activities of the week encourage us to think globally as they highlight our region’s global connections through commerce, tourism, education, volunteerism, delegations, and cultural diversity.

Ultimately, the week’s activities inspire us to act locally by:

  • Getting involved in global issues and partnerships
  • Improving cultural competences to work with diverse populations
  • Encouraging businesses to utilize information and tools that help them stay competitive in a global market.

WHEN IS GLOBAL INITIATIVES WEEK?

November 6-13, 2015 – it goes from the first to second Friday in November.

WHAT EVENTS TOOK PLACE DURING THE 2014 GLOBAL INITIATIVES WEEK?

There were more than 20 separate events in the La Crosse region last year, including films, speakers, dances and cultural celebrations. Events included:

WHAT IMPACT DID THESE EVENTS MAKE ON THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED?

The 20+ events held during the 2014 Global Initiatives Week reached nearly 2,000 individuals in the Coulee Region!

In a survey sent to participants in the week’s events, 73% of respondents indicated an increased awareness of our region’s cultural or global connections, and over 60% indicated they were more likely to participate in activities that promote cultural or global connections as a result of participating in GIW activities.

Below are a few of the comments made by 2014 participants which reveal the impact of GIW activities:

  • I am much more aware of what is available throughout the community in terms of international awareness.
  • [I have] increasing appreciation for diversity and it’s + [positive] effects on a community.
  • Understanding how and what others suffered through in the past helps us potentially avoid creating similar situations and beliefs. We brought our 3 boys, ages 8, 10 and 13, with us [to the Dakota 38 film] and they had plenty of questions on the ride home.
  • I found many similarities with many of the professors and it made me realize the similarities between people, rather than the differences.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anyone! Any organization in the La Crosse region is welcome to plan and/or host an event as part of this week’s celebration. There is no cost to promote your event as part of Global Initiatives Week.

Similarly, anyone is welcome to participate in the events during the week. Certain events may be appropriate for specific audiences (e.g. children, adults, families) depending on the content. These parameters will be specified in the listing of the event on the www.explorelacrosse.com/global website.

HOW DO WE GET INVOLVED?

If you want to plan or host an event for promotion through Global Initiatives Week, please add your event to the calendar via the site www.explorelacrosse.com/global. Submit your event by September 18th to maximize promotion of your event through press releases, the GIW calendar, media coverage and more.

WHAT KIND OF PROMOTION CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE FOR MY EVENT?

  • Broad sharing of the calendar of events through the La Crosse Area Convention & Visitors Bureau email lists and social media sites
  • Fliers pointing people to the website and calendar of events

“Not My Life” Documentary Viewing @ Viterbo University Nursing Center Room 196
Nov 11 @ 7:00 pm
"Not My Life" Documentary Viewing @ Viterbo University Nursing Center Room 196 | La Crosse | Wisconsin | United States

Not My Life is the first film to depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited, every day, through an astonishing array of practices including forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering.

“Human traffickers are earning billions of dollars on the backs and in the beds of our children,” says the film’s director, Academy Award nominee, Robert Bilheimer, “and yet no one knows this is happening.” We have a huge responsibility, right now, to learn the truth and act on it.

Challenging though it may be, Not My Life’s message is ultimately one of hope. Victims of slavery can be set free and go on to live happy and productive lives. Those who advocate for slavery victims are growing in numbers, and are increasingly effective. At this crossroads for the defining human rights issue of our time, Not My Life tells us, as the late Jonathan Mann said, “We can no longer flee, no longer hide, no longer separate ourselves.”
