The Symphony is a coordinated by the International Water Secretariat, a non-government organization based in Montreal, Quebec (visit http://www.sie-isw.org/en/the-first-great-lakes-a-st-lawrence-symphony)
The Symphony hopes to hear from residents along the lakes regarding the following questions:
- What unites all of us who live in the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence system?
- What is important to us and what worries us regarding our waters?
- What do we want to promote?
- What is our shared vision for 2035?
- What actions should we take to make our vision come true?
In the summer of 2012, a group of 50 people selected from project participants will present a synopsis of these responses to the annual meeting of the Great Lakes Initiative, a collaborative of Great Lakes mayors.
We hope this project will continue beyond that as a mechanism for people to continue to express their goals and vision for our spectacular resource represented by the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River and Gulf.
