The Great Lakes Restoration Conference provides a 3-day forum for participants to learn about important Great Lakes restoration issues, network at the largest annual gathering of Great Lakes supporters and activists, and develop strategies to advance federal, regional and local restoration goals. The collective gathering—known as Great Lakes Week—will attract close to 700 activists, government representatives, industry leaders, tribal members, environmental consultants, and academic institutions under one roof to network and collaborate on issues of critical urgency facing the Great Lakes.Topics discussed include: The Indiana dunes, Green Infrastructure, Algae, The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA), Environmental Justice, The Great Rivers Chicago project, Asian Carp, & more!
The Great Lakes Commission 2015 Annual Meeting is an opportunity for Great Lakes stakeholders to convene with colleagues and share perspectives on important Great Lakes issues. This is a time of exciting opportunities for the Great Lakes region, yet we face continuing challenges, not the least of which are the ever-changing nature of the region’s economy, and dealing with threats from a changing climate and invasive species.
