In honor of National Public Works Week 2021, the City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works, Office of Community Beautification and Keep Los Angeles Beautiful proudly present the 3rd Annual Virtual Beautification Conference! This year’s Public Works Week theme “Stronger Together” captures our core belief that by working together and forming strategic partnerships we can beautify and improve the quality of life for all Angelenos. Through the engaging online events platform called Hopin, this virtual conference will convene a wide range of stakeholders with a shared vision of a cleaner and more sustainable Los Angeles.

Representatives from community organizations, nonprofits, youth advocates, researchers, Federal, State, County and Local Public Agencies, and City of L.A. Departments will gather online to share their stories, network, learn about programs and resources, and listen to various presentations on key topics.
