About the Conference and Awards

The Keep Britain Tidy Network Conference has been running since 1990. The event provides a platform for land managers, service and solution providers to drive up standards in public places on a national and local level.

The conference and awards attract a wide variety of attendees, including 150+ decision makers from across England. Delegates will be able to enjoy a full day of networking, presentations and round-table discussions.

An important aspect of the conference is the prestigious Keep Britain Tidy Network Awards, which reward excellence and innovation in improving local environmental quality and enable Network members to share good practice. New for 2018, to celebrate the wider campaigns of Keep Britain Tidy, we have introduced three new award categories, open to Network members and non-members.


This year we have 10 awards, seven exclusively open to Network members and three new awards open to all Local Authorities. For these awards, nominations must be from a Local Authority, but can celebrate the achievements of residents, community groups, partnerships and others. Applying for an award is simple, all the information you need is available in our awards guidance pack
