2019 Community Engagement Conference: Partnering for a Resilient and Sustainable Future

Content

When it comes to building a community that is environmentally sustainable and resilient, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin believes The Ohio State University should play a role similar to a certain web-slinging superhero.

“So I think it’s like the Spiderman thing: You guys have a lot of power and you have a lot of responsibility,” he said.

Abdul-Matin, who served as the sustainability policy adviser to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, will get to expand on that idea on campus later this month. He’s a keynote speaker at the Ohio State 2019 Community Engagement Conference, set for Jan. 23 and 24 in the Ohio Union.
