Sustainability SummitNovember 2019 marks the 40th Anniversary for Keep Knoxville Beautiful (KKB). To celebrate this milestone, KKB will be hosting the Sustainability Summit: Shaping a Resilient Knoxville.

The Summit will be held on November 8, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the City of Knoxville Public Works Complex, 3131 Morris Avenue.

The Summit will begin with three presentations and close out with a panel discussion. 

Presentations include Kroger, focusing on their Zero Hunger Zero Waste initiative; Discovery Inc. will showcase how they have maintained a sustainable workplace; and the Tennessee RiverLine will let Knoxville know about their ongoing project. The panel discussion will feature Gabriel Bolas of Knoxville Utilities Board, Erin Gill with the City of Knoxville Sustainability, Anne Victoria with Knoxville Area Transit, as well two representatives from the Tennessee Valley Authority. 

The Summit is free and open to the public, those wishing to attend must reserve a seat at https://kkbsustainabilitysummit.eventbrite.com.

Doors for the event open at 8:30 a.m. with breakfast provided and presentations begin at 9 a.m.
