Our Global Oakland Initiative (GO!) analyzes and promotes interconnections between the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area and other Pacific Rim cities and regions. The Initiative currently focuses on supply chains and trade, cultural exchange and research networks, sustainable cities and resilient communities.

Signature projects include the Oakland International Film Festival & APPSI Global Oakland Seminar (in partnership with the Oakland Film Society), the APPSI Global Oakland Sister Cities Project, and the Fair Trade University Campaign & APPSI Global Oakland Food Justice Project (with Oakland-based Fair Trade USA).
