Freshwater Future (FF): Keep the Networking Going - Help Organize a Community Climate Subgroup as Part of the Great Lakes Network

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Events like the Great Lakes Adaptation Forum remind us all of how much we can learn from others, prevent recreating the wheel, and collaborate on shared concerns.  Wouldn’t it be great to keep the conversations going after the event?  Come be a part of this working session to talk about creating a Community Climate Network for community groups around the Great Lakes region to continue talking, learning, and making a difference.

Freshwater Future will share background on the recently created Great Lakes Network and how tools of the network could be beneficial for Community Climate subgroup. The purpose of the Great Lakes Network is to provide a structure for diverse, independent groups to collaborate, share tools and information, and take coordinated action that supports work to  protect and restore water in the Great Lakes region.  Instead of creating a network framework when it is needed, the frame is there waiting to be used.

Participants will share what they would want out of a continuing network and if there is interest in establishing a subgroup of the Great Lakes Network on Community Climate or potentially other related topics.

Come prepared for a dynamic conversation.
