This Keep America Beautiful webinar series will bring together businesses, consumers, corporations, elected officials, and more, as well as Keep America Beautiful representatives to explore what a transition to zero-waste communities can look like. The series will continue the conversation that began at the Keep America Beautiful annual Vision for America event in 2020, which explored the vision around re-defining communities and how that can look in a waste-free world.

"A Vision for the Future" is the first webinar of the series . Cities and towns across the United States have developed and launched comprehensive plans with clear timetables in their drive toward waste-free communities. They are now taking action to achieve these ambitious goals. These actions are also proving key to making our urban centers cleaner, healthier, and more resilient. In this webinar, you’ll be learning how these municipalities are: 

  • Defining zero waste 
  • Creating an inclusive process for building a city-wide consensus  
  • Identifying key elements of a zero-waste plan 
  • Securing measurable gains   

SERIES OVERVIEW

Litter on our streets. Plastics in our waterways. Carbon in our air. These are all forms of mounting mismanaged waste causing acute challenges for communities across America. 

Now, imagine that incineration and landfilling waste is no longer an option? Over the coming decades, these are very real possibilities as communities face the sustainable concerns facing the planet. Zero waste offers a powerful, positive, and possible alternative.  

Across the United States, businesses, investors, elected officials, regulators, consumers, and communities are coming together to explore the idea around a waste-free world.  

The Keep America Beautiful webinar series, “Exploring the Transition to Zero-Waste Communities,” is a 2021 convening discussion designed to explore the vision around re-defining communities and how that can look in a waste-free world.
