The Recovery Series

Threats and Opportunities for our Great Lakes

Join us for the final week of The Recovery Series with Executive Director Tim Gray, where we try to make sense of the COVID-19 crisis from an environmental perspective. Each week, we dig into the most pressing questions on current environmental issues.

In this final episode, we dig into the current threats and opportunities for our Great Lakes, including high water levels, the looming threat of algae blooms and the need to invest in resilience. This week, we will be joined by Dr. Anastasia Lintner (lawyer, economist and Great Lakes protector) to talk about how investments in protecting freshwater and green infrastructure can create jobs, re-stimulate the economy and protect shoreline communities for the long term. A key discussion in closing our Recovery Series, we’ll look at real-world examples of how green stimulus is revitalizing ecosystems and many Canadians’ livelihoods, providing a roadmap for the future ahead.

Register today so you can tune in for the discussion! You can check out our previous episodes here.
