Status of the Great Lakes and Challenges Being Faced
With Special Guest Speaker: John Dickert, President and Chief Executive Office, Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative
The A&WMA Lake Michigan States Section and the Union League Club Environmental Committee are pleased to invite you to join us to hear John Dickert speak at the December 18, 2018 Environmental Breakfast. John Dickert is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative.
The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative is a binational coalition of 131 U.S. and Canadian mayors and local officials working to advance the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. The Cities Initiative and local officials integrate environmental, economic and social agendas and sustain a resource that represents approximately 20 percent of the world’s surface freshwater supply, provides drinking water for 40 million people, and is the foundation upon which a strong regional economy is based. Members of the Cities Initiative work together and with other orders of government and stakeholders to improve infrastructure, programs and services and increase investments that protect and restore this globally significant freshwater resource. Only by working together to protect the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence can we preserve and enhance the quality of life and economic well-being of the people of the region.
The Cities Initiative works with mayors and municipal staff to protect and preserve the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence region at the local, regional, and basin-wide levels.
