The Great Lakes Clean Communities Network (GLCCN), funded by the Great Lakes Protection Fund, is an online network designed to connect environmental professionals and organizations across the Great Lakes Basin to spur innovation and new ideas that will help address challenges facing the Great Lakes. The Network provides a common platform for sharing ideas, successes, and resources, as well as connecting individuals through groups and an interactive Great Lakes map. In addition, over 100 tools and resources are inventoried on the GLCCN that address various environmental issues such as invasive species, nonpoint source pollution and climate change. The GLCCN also offers an “Ecological Scorecard,” which helps measure and track a community’s ecological health using 12 water and land indicators. Through collaboration and dynamic networking, watershed groups, sustainability managers, environmental organizations, local governments, lake associations, universities and others are able to build new and stronger partnerships, translate innovative ideas into powerful outcomes, and ultimately find better solutions for the Great Lakes.
