MORPC Receives Platinum Certification through Sustainable2050

MORPC Partners with Atlanta Region on 2020 Summit on Sustainability

    August 19, 2020

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s annual Summit on Sustainability is set to return in October. With a virtual format for 2020, MORPC is now partnering with its peer organization in Atlanta to deliver a summit that includes a wider array of content.

    The Summit on Sustainability is MORPC’s annual environmental conference, bringing together more than 500 community leaders to explore and share sustainable ideas, and to celebrate individual and collaborative sustainability efforts with the Regional Sustainability Awards.

    The 2020 Summit on Sustainability theme will be, “Resilient. Adaptable. Bold.” It will focus on having the willingness and perseverance to put sustainable solutions into action in our everyday lives.

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the summit is being held virtually over a two-day period:

    October 15                              October 16
    12 – 4:45 p.m.                         10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

    MORPC is excited to be building upon the new, online format by partnering with the Atlanta Regional Commission on subject matter, best practices, and speakers. Attendees for the plenary and breakout sessions will be participating from both regions – and elsewhere.

    “MORPC and the Atlanta Regional Commission have an ongoing and close relationship through engagement in the National Association of Regional Council and shared staff learning and leadership on sustainability, diversity, mobility, and more. Building upon our recent peer exchanges and like-minded goals for the future of our growing regions, our work together on the Summit on Sustainability is a natural partnership.”
    William Murdock, Executive Director of MORPC

    The summit will allow for a closer look at best practices across both the Central Ohio and the Atlanta regions – bringing in top-notch speakers to share stories and ideas related to sustainability and allowing those in each region to learn from one another. Topics will relate to everything from air and water quality to energy, mobility, development, and the current political environment.
