GLIN==> GLU annual meeting June 7-9: basinwide restoration



Great Lakes United's 20th Annual General Meeting
June 7-9, Chicago, Illinois

"ACTION AGENDA" AND GREAT SPEAKERS

Will Great Lakes basin governments propose a comprehensive plan for 
restoring the Great Lakes? It happened in the Florida Everglades. Some 
citizens and regional officials think it could happen here, too.

If the governments do act (and especially if they don't), Great Lakes 
citizens need to develop and actively promote our own version of a 
comprehensive restoration agenda.

Help create and advocate a grassroots-supported "Great Lakes Action Agenda" 
to collectively promote progressive policy, seek new protection and 
restoration funding, and change business as usual in the Great Lakes - St. 
Lawrence River basin.

* See draft agendas fashioned by basinwide committees
* Engage in group discussion, debate, and revision
* Help plan action campaigns

Meeting speakers include:

* Michael Dombeck, former chief of the US Forest Service and pioneer 
professor of Global Environmental Management at the University of Wisconsin
* Sandra Steingraber, internationally recognized author/activist, cancer 
survivor, and faculty at Cornell University's Center for the Environment
* Herb Grey, newly appointed Canadian co-chair of the Canada-U.S. 
International Joint Commission
* Marcia Jiminez, Chicago's Commissioner of the Environment
* Dave Dempsey of Michigan Environmental Council, introducing the need for 
a Great Lakes Action Agenda

The Great Lakes United annual meeting is being held at Loyola University's 
Lake Shore Campus on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago. For the full 
agenda and registration go to: www.glu.org

Register by May 21.

See you in Chicago!
