TELEVISION FOR AMERICA
AND THE WORLD
Georgetta Duncan, known as Juja created an unusual and compelling project for her team game in the world in Landmark’s Team Management Leadership Program: She created “Our America,” her own television program that covered Louisville’s Worldfest, a leading, annual American multicultural festival that celebrates immigrants and the diverse cultures that comprise the United States.
Every year, 1.4 million immigrants come to the United States seeking a better life. Duncan, herself an immigrant from Bulgaria, interviews various festival attendees about the uniqueness of their culture and quotes Louisville officials about the importance of immigrants to the American work force and the American dream.
While the environment has become an issue that is front and center for most of us, for the indigenous peoples around the world, it has always been an issue of primary importance. Landmark Education Graduates Mary Velarde and Veronica Tiller created a the Global Green Indigenous Film Festival in association with its 15th annual environmental conference next spring, the National Tribal Environmental Council (NTEC), a non-profit based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will launch its new own Global Green Indigenous Film Festival from April 18-20, 2008.
The National Tribal Environmental Council is an organization that has been working to â€œenhance each tribe’s ability to protect, preserve and promote the wise management of air, land and water for the benefit of current and future generations (from website),â€ and currently has a membership of 184 tribes.
“For nearly 20 years, NTEC has been working with and assisting tribes throughout the country to protect, regulate and manage their environmental resources,” said Jerry Pardilla, NTECâ€™s executive director. “An international film festival of this caliber adds a new dimension that will bring innovative ideas together as a means for protecting the environment that the global community can benefit from.”
The festival will be held at El Museo Cultural in
