Access -- one of the many key elements to making a commons. Access to clean water sources, access to decision making processes, and access to information and communication. One simple step in making the Great Lakes Commons Charter more accessible is making a pocket version -- done.
Toronto has been developing a Great Lakes Commons workshop that introduces how GLC is different from many other water protection organizations.

See the slight difference. You can see and download a copy of the workshop outline and materials if you'd like to host a similar workshop in your community.
