Future 50 class of 2022:See who made the list
Idea: Columbus could be a green city. I’ve seen many efforts by the city, private businesses and advocacy groups in recent years working on this goal. Today, more than ever, people are environmentally conscious. Recycling, adopting energy-conserving practices in the home and turning to renewable energy sources gains more traction each year. Each person who participates in a meaningful way adds to the collective impact. I’d love to see each of the Future 50 publicly commit to adopt just one or more new sustainable practices in their life and challenge their social networks to do the same. This is how habits are formed, and the wave of effort to take Columbus to a greener level can be achieved.
