The 2015 Great Lakes Place-based Education Conference was a great success. Our next conference will be held in 2017, so be sure to visit our conference webpage throughout the year for updated information on the dates and venue. We look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome!

 

The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) was launched in 2007 to develop knowledgeable and active stewards of the Great Lakes through vibrant, hands-on experiences in the community. 

From its inception through the 2014–15 school year, the GLSI has worked with 1,562 teachers in 283 schools across Michigan, and supported rigorous stewardship experiences for more than 80,000 students.

With assistance from participating educators, civic leaders, and community partners, the GLSI’s work

  • helps young people become effective and motivated environmental stewards;
  • encourages schools and community organizations to work together for mutual benefit; and
  • creates a sustained effort across Michigan to expand classrooms, strengthen communities, and serve as a beacon for the betterment of education, communities, and the environment.
