Lakes Urban Exchange
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.
The mission of the Water Connections Project is to develop
and implement a web-based water information portal that will provide
users with immediate access to a nationwide collection of water
data, resources, contacts and other pertinent information.
