In conjunction with the International Joint Commission's 1999 Biennial Forum on Great Lakes Water Quality, the first Great Lakes Environmental Expo will be held at the New Midwest Express Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, September 24-26, 1999. The Great Lakes Environmental Expo will provide the opportunity for organizations, companies, schools and government to showcase a variety of special projects, new technology, environmental products and future plans to maintain and preserve our Great Lakes.

The main focus of The Great Lakes Environmental Expo will be to provide information and further educate the public on environmental concerns within the Great Lakes system. Never before have groups been given the opportunity to display at an event of this type and scale which brings together the major players surrounding the quality of our Great Lakes, the largest fresh water system on the planet. This event will also have an emphasis on hands-on activities to showcase specific projects and environmental technology.

Students will play a key role in this 60,000 square foot event. Special displays will give attendees some insight on what tomorrow's leaders have to say about the future of the Great Lakes and the efforts taking place to preserve them.
