The Great Lakes contain 20 percent of the world's fresh surface water, provide drinking water for more than 30 million people, move American and Canadian grain and iron, and play a large role in economies from Chicago to Toronto to Montreal. The Great Lakes, like the Mississippi River, also connect North America's heartland to the larger world - through the St. Lawrence River. And while the St. Lawrence has unquestionably facilitated immense economic activity, this man-made connection between the Great Lakes and the Atlantic has also introduced costs: invasive species upend ecosystems, legacy pollution lingers, and costly, sometimes obsolete, infrastructure projects are challenged by a changing climate.
 
IJNR will conduct a six-day, expenses-paid training program for journalists based out of Montreal and scheduled for September 23-29, 2018. During this program, journalists will investigate natural resource and environment issues surrounding the St. Lawrence River. More information.
