The Summit on Sustainability is MORPC’s signature environmental conference, bringing hundreds of community leaders together to explore and share sustainable ideas and solutions, and to celebrate individual and collaborative sustainability efforts with the Green Region Awards.

Join the conversation on November 14, 2017 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown. This year’s theme, Communities Taking Charge, will focus on sharing best practices that can be applied by local communities, regions, and businesses to enhance the built environment in which we live. These examples will be brought to attendees in five main categories: 1) Policy, 2) Energy & Environment, 3) Local Foods, 4) Land-Use, and 5) Transportation
