Lake water levels. Restoration. Green infrastructure. All of these issues will be on the table during Great Lakes Week 2014 in Grand Rapids – and DPTV through Great Lakes Now brings it to you live online. Great Lakes Week is hosted this year by Healing Our Waters – Great Lakes Coalition, and will focus discussion around cutting-edge Great Lakes issues and elevating them amongst diverse stakeholders, including public officials, media and citizens. The gathering will attract close to 400 activists, government officials, business and industry leaders from across the region.
One topic receiving a lot of attention this year will be the growing threat posed by plastics to plant and animal life, in addition to exploring the science, politics, and future of the Great Lakes.
