Hello to our Virginia Green Travel Partners and

to all of you out there who are working to make our

communities more sustainable!

 

More than ever, it is critically important for us

to work closely with partner organizations that

share our common goals to protect the environment

and support sustainable tourism and communities throughout Virginia.

 

This year, we are honored to partner with Keep Virginia Beautiful (KVB). The conference will be part of a year-long celebration of KVB's 70th anniversary – 70 years of working to support recycling, litter prevention and beautification projects in Virginia. We are excited for this great opportunity to reach out to all of the local affiliates of KVB and Keep America Beautiful (KAB) so that they can learn more about the Virginia Green Travel program. And we are equally excited for our partners to learn about opportunities to become more engaged with KVB/KAB affiliates in their local communities!

  • Keynote Speakers on each day:
