Neat Streets Roadshow

LARAC is delighted to be partnering with the environmental charity Hubbub on a series of Local Authority Roadshows the UK in 2017.

As we all know, Local Authorities are increasingly facing reduced budgets and are under pressure to move away from service provision and towards prevention models. Hubbub’s Neat Streets campaign campaign reduced litter in one of the busiest streets in London by 26% and has spread to Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham.

At the Roadshows, Hubbub along with its partners, will build the capacity of Local Authorities to deliver behaviour change campaigns and to roll out Neat Streets approaches. They are suitable for senior managers working in street cleansing, waste and communications.

The Roadshow is sponsored by McDonalds and completely free to attend.

  • The London Roadshow will take place from 10.00-15.30 on Thursday 27th April at Somerset House, Central London.
  • The South East Roadshow will take place from 10.00-15.30 on Thursday 11th May at the NCVO in Central London.
  • Roadshows are also planned in the North, Midlands and South West but these dates are not yet confirmed.

 We hope you will take advantage of this exciting opportunity; spaces are limited so we encourage you to reserve your places as soon as possible.
