“The Great Lakes Encounter Symposium 2022 is an exciting and important gathering in Houghton next June 2022. It is the place to be if you are concerned about the health and well-being of the Great Lakes.”

(David Phillips, Senior Climatologist – Environment Canada)

The Great Lakes Encounter Symposium (GLES) seeks to host the “Super Bowl” of Great Lakes policy events. Policymakers, industry leaders, regional stakeholders, and leading experts from the engineering, environmental science, technology, economics, and water safety sectors, come together at GLES to challenge the status quo, dialogue, critically address challenges with scholarly recommendations, and collaborate on solutions. Hosted by Michigan Technological University (MTU), the GLES is facilitated by a small business owned by the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community in collaboration with MTU GLES Planning Committee members: Elizabeth Hoy, Dr. Andrew Barnard, and Roman Sisdortsov.
