Great Lakes Urban Exchange

GLIN Site of the Month GLUE, an on- and offline coalition comprised of post-boomer urbanists located in the "rustbelt," was founded to promote the power, aide in the positive transformation, and address the shared challenges of similarly-storied older industrial cities situated in the Great Lakes watershed. Among the ranks of the GLUE coalition are community organizers, urban planners, artists, environmentalists, entrepreneurs, and students living and working in over 20 cities in 10 states. Become a member at GLUEspace.org to exchange information and ideas about the condition and future of our urban communities.
