Project Details

The grant funded the AGL to establish the Great Lakes Education Collaborative (GLEC). The goal of the Great Lakes Education Collaborative (GLEC) is to promote and expand Great Lakes education and stewardship in the eight Great Lakes states. As a result of the grant, GLEC developed:
*A structure for the GLEC including goals and strategies
*The membership of the GLEC to include at least 15 formal and non-formal education organizations representing six of the Great Lakes states (short of the eight proposed)
*A sustainability plan (goals, strategies, budget) that promotes place-based education (PBE) among the members of the collaborative as an effective strategy to lead to stewardship and lay the groundwork for expanding the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) beyond Michigan
*A “funder-ready” proposal as a pilot test of the structure emerging for the GLEC over the course of the grant.
