This Great Lakes Commons initiative emerged from a confluence of political, emotional, social, and ethical forces that are constantly changing. But how is GLC changing? At the end of July, we invited some of our longest and more curious supporters to talk about what 'emergence' means to them and how GLC can change. The event was inspired by the book Emergent Strategy: shaping change, changing worlds, by Adrienne Maree Brown, since she has laid out many key principles and practices for looking at social movements through the lens of "emergence".
At GLC we want to connect with you. We do our best with email messages and Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube updates – but there’s so much missing. Where can people who share the same passion and curiosity ‘meetup’ across a vast bioregion like the Great Lakes and work collaboratively to protect them?
