Through a Wider Lens: Re-envisioning the Great Lakes MegaRegion

Goals are to develop an identity built on the MegaRegion’s unique assets, to create economic growth, to protect and restore the natural environment, and to strive to eliminate segregation and inequality. Several sets of strategies can help to achieve these goals.
