ABOUT THE EVENT  

Thank you to everyone that participated in Vision 2022 and engaged with leaders from government, business, and the nonprofit sector to further KAB’s ground-breaking work toward a litter-free America.

The Keep America Beautiful Vision for America event is a 30-year tradition. After 2 years of delivering digital experience, we’re pleased to be back in person this year for a two-day working, learning, and celebration event that will highlight the power of tri-sector leadership to urgently address litter as an essential element of healthy civic infrastructure, environmental integrity, and community equity. It’ll take place October 26 & 27 in NYC at Rockefeller Center.
