Great Lakes Commons Map

Perspective is everything. Many think the birth of the environmental movement started with the iconic 1968 ‘space-view’ of earth to orient the global message of conservation, connectedness, reverence, and fragility. This map organizes ideas by place for a similar purpose. Care for the whole starts with a deeper connection to where you call home.

The ultimate goal of this map is to use the energy of the crowd (crowdsourcing or collective intelligence) with the power of networked media to arouse our biosphere consciousness: a mind-shift that understands and defends our interdependence with all of the earth’s elements.

This Commons map has been initiated and produced by Paul Baines with gifted web design and development by Darren Puscas from reWORKit.net. Additional development contributions have also been made throughout the spring and summer of 2013 by Jamie Pistone, Anar Rahimli, and Kirien Chen from the HFOSS club at the University of Toronto.
