Food: Locally Embedded Globally Engaged (FLEdGE) We use research partnerships to explore the current and potential role of community food initiatives to act as pillars of regional, sustainable transformation.


The Lake Superior Living Labs Network has evolved from relationships between Lakehead University, the University of Minnesota Duluth, Algoma University and a number of non-profit organizations, businesses, First Nations and tribal governments across the Lake Superior watershed. This partnership project will work with new and existing academic and community partners to increase the impact of sustainability related teaching, research, and action, with a focus identifying innovative solutions to issues at the nexus of water and land, climate and energy, and individual and community well-being.
