New Americans, Part Two

Georgetta Duncan continues her exploration of immigration in this third part of her film series that she created in the Landmark Education Team Management Leadership Program. The first film looked at Louisville’s World Fest annual celebration, while the second film began an exploration of Bulgarian culture and history. Bulgarian born, Duncan continues to explore Bulgarian culture and Bulgarians who came to America, including Bulgaria’s large number of opera stars.

This video is the second part of Georgetta Duncan’s film series on immigrants and immigration. The first part, Our America, showcased Louisville’s World Fest, an annual festival and parade celebrating immigrants worldwide. This second film focuses on the history and culture Duncan’s birth nation of Bulgaria, which is at a crossroads between east and west. The film features footage from Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital.

Duncan Spotlights Louisville Immigrants

They follow in the footsteps of all Americans who’ve come to this land over millennia to weave a wonderful tapestry of culture and history.

This is the chronicle of our journeys, our struggles, our stories:

Our America!

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.

Note: the article below was written by C.K. Lin as he created a team to launch Opportunity Green as his Team Game in the World in Landmark Education’s TMLP. Since then, Lin and his team made the project a full-fledged reality, creating a Landmark conference, and Opportunity Green is now flourishing (see the website below). Here is Lin’s article from the 10/26/07 TMLP Times.

Possibility of being global leadership in sustainable business enterprises

Outcome: Southern California is leading the world in inspiring sustainable business enterprises that has the planet flourishing

Description: With the public’s attention primarily concentrated on the debate over whether or not our lifestyle is destroying the environment, there is little focus on those actively striving to promote change in the way business impacts it.

A number of TMLP graduates looked at this information gap and created a conference called Opportunity Green. Our intention for Opportunity Green is that we transform the business enterprises in Southern California from the zero-sum gain mentality to the triple bottom line mentality—that they make a difference in our community, minimize our impact on the planet, and most importantly produce profit for the enterprises. The founders envisioned a place where those interested in sustainable business could converge to foster further interest in helping the environment and conceive new ways to establish the burgeoning movement towards a world filled with environmentally conscious businesses.

As a result of our efforts, a group of these like-minded people are coming together at the University of California, Los Angeles on November 17th for Opportunity Green, a conference for those on the cutting edge of environmentally friendly business. The event is being headed by a group of collaborators on the forefront of the green movement, including Kevin Wall, the founder of Live Earth, and John Picard, a well-known environmental builder and technologist. Picard also founded the US Green Building Council, which helps to make environmentally unfriendly poor companies with an interest in changing their ways become more sustainable. Those in attendance will include executives, professionals, investors, and bloggers, all hoping to build bonds with people who share similar interests while discussing methods for developing businesses that can be sustainable and environmentally friendly while remaining profitable.

Opportunity Green was conceived just five months ago, and has rapidly grown from a simple idea into something much greater. As the result of what we are causing, OG has evolved into a conference backed by some of the biggest names in the environmental movement, and has the potential to greatly shift the manner in which business operates. As we create a legacy that sustains the momentum of the event, the world shall see Southern California as the model for sustainable business enterprises.
