Themes: Aboriginal Networks, Celebration Days
Big Idea:
Concept of Commons

The Concept of Commons idea is centered around the Great Lakes becoming known as shared property.
The following networks were identified for this idea:

  • Conservation authorities
  • First Nations and Métis
  • Environmental non-government organizations
  • Governments

Planning for this idea begins with mapping accessible waterfront sites and identifying partnerships along these new waterfront routes. Next steps include working in collaboration with trail organizations around the Great Lakes to create locations for “passport” check-ins to engage and educate citizens. As the project develops prizes could be used as incentives to drive community participation.
