Calumet-area stakeholders gathered Tuesday for the first of a two-day summit aimed at making connections on environmental issues across the Illinois/Indiana state line.
“Connection is one thing, but moving it to the next step is another,” Dr. Mark Bouman, Chicago Region program director at The Field Museum and co-chairman of the Calumet Stewardship Initiative, said. “We want to make this conversation count.”
The theme of this year’s Calumet Summit at the Marquette Park Pavilion is Connecting for Action. Leaders from nonprofit groups, industry and local, state and federal governments are among the more than 100 people participating in the event coordinated by the Calumet Stewardship Initiative.
