GLBD | Detroit MI
Welcome to Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit - GLBD
GLBD promotes collaboration and networking among SE Michigan individuals and organizations working on sustainability and eco-justice issues.
GLBD's work depends on a "gift" economy: the gift of time from numerous volunteers, the gift of talents and skills from conference presenters, the gift of artists, chefs, farmers, the support of our sponsors, exhibitors and vendors. Contact Gloria Rivera at email@example.com to learn how you can be a part of GLBD.
We also need and value your financial gift. Your tax-deductible donation helps us bring the conference and ongoing events to Detroit each year.
Monday Community Movie Nights - Monday April 28, 2014
A FREE monthly Gathering celebrating the connections between health, the environment, agriculture, food security, the economy & our community.
Popcorn and Refreshment! Discussions after the Movie!
Blue Gold Corporate giants force developing countries to privatize their water supply for profit. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain. Military control of water emerges and a new geo-political map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars. The film follows numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to violent revolutions to U.N. conventions to revised constitutions to local protests at grade schools. Discussion after the film will focus on the privatization of Detroit's water system.
