USA: Detroit to Host October’s Great Lakes Week
On June 15, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other participating organizations will announce details of the first-ever Great Lakes Week scheduled for October 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.
The theme of Great Lakes Week is “Working Together, Taking Action” and will bring representatives of the U.S. and Canadian governments together with a broad coalition of public and private groups to highlight efforts to implement solutions for the lakes’ most pressing problems.
Great Lakes Week advances President Obama ’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the largest investment in the Great Lakes in two decades. The special week also gathers the annual meetings and conferences of various organizations in one place, making it one of the most wide-ranging Great Lakes summits in history.
