Becoming Great Ancestors

A TRANSFORMATIVE APPROACH

We believe there is hope in the wisdom and practice of commons and indigenous governance. Both are long-standing traditions, distinct yet each embodying a kindred attention to:

care for the water

shared responsibility

equitable and sustainable use

a multi-generational perspective

the integrity of the eco-system

participatory decision making

While this may feel a long way from the way we govern the Lakes now, these commitments exist in our histories and cultures, our family and faith traditions, our public trust laws and many of our community practices. They reflect both scientific realities and our personal values about the significance of our Lakes.

We are creating a new Great Lakes Commons Charter to build on the best of traditions and build momentum for the Great Lakes to be lived and governed as a commons.
