U.S.-Japan Grassroots Environmental NGO Exchange
LakeNet and Kosho Net have cooperated to organize exchanges among leaders of grassroots envioronmental organizations in the U.S. and Japan. The first exchange took place in connection with the 3rd World Water Forum in Shiga, Japan in March 2003. A delegation of NGO leaders from the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain visited their counterparts on Lake Biwa and attended sessions during the forum. A return delegation of Japanese environmental leaders visited Lake Michigan a part of the 10th World Lakes Conference in June, 2003.
