This work needs an active and engaged community. Here are some ways to participate:

Watch our new video about the Great Lakes Commons and share it.

Read the Social Charter Declaration, sign on your support and add your thoughts on the principles.

Add your images, video or story about “commoning” the Lakes to the collaborative map.

Artist Ricardo Reclaim the Commons Help us illustrate and illuminate the Great Lakes Commons by sharing your art, writing and other creative work in our website gallery.

Join and participate in our new ‘collaboratory‘ (collaboration + laboratory) where we can keep this cross-border exchange going in our member forums.
