Motion. As water flows through our lives, how does it move us? What e-motions are stirring when we witness the state of the Great Lakes?In 2016, from Mother’s Day to Thanksgiving, Great Lakes Commons rallied people across the waters to journey in unity. Walk, bike, paddle, sail, or surf to connect with the lakes and others who are becoming great ancestors -- guardians of the Great Lakes. In 2019, can you journey part of the Great Lakes this year and add motion to this ongoing movement?
When packing for a good journey, it's hard to remember everything you might need along the way.
Great Lakes Commons has been busy this winter and spring collaborating with people and projects across the bioregion to animate a 'Commons Journey'. It was hard to keep up with all the interest and support.
We got an email back in April about a poet, musician, and cyclist planning to ride around Lake Superior and talk about a water commons. Ben Weaver calls Minneapolis home and sets off today to extend his circle and community of care.
