Share your worry and wisdom on this map to mark and make a new story for the Great Lakes.
Water is not a product or playground, but a commons. Its value is based on how well we share it as a source of life, not as a resource. The Great Lakes are not an inheritance to gamble with, but a gift we are borrowing from future generations.
Each dot on this map tells a story. Add yours to multiply the bonds and power between all those who are committed to revitalizing these amazing waters. Explore the rest of this site to learn more about a Great Lakes Commons and then please share your own story when ready.
