Global Initiatives Week events happening in our area

A celebration of cultures in our community kicked off at North Woods International School in La Crosse on Friday.

Global Initiatives Week started on November 8, and runs through next Friday. It’s a week packed with diverse activities in our area that encourage people to think globally and act locally.

North Woods started the week with a variety of performances, cooking demonstrations, and multi-lingual story time for kids.

Planning Committee Chair for Global Initiatives Week, Miranda Panzer, says this upcoming week is a chance to highlight the connections our area has around the world.

“It helps creates a global awareness. Helping connect people beyond our borders, helping create more awareness, and helping showcase the diversity that we have here in the greater La Crosse area,” said Panzer.
