The LivCom Awards were launched in 1997 and is the World’s only Awards Competition focusing on International Best Practice regarding the management of the local environment. The objective of LivCom is to develop and share International Best Practice, with the further objective of improving the quality of life of individual citizens through the creation of ‘liveable communities’. Since 2007 UNEP has collaborated with the LivCom Awards, when a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two Organisations.

The LivCom Awards is managed by a UK Registered Company that is Limited by Guarantee and is a non profit distributing Company. The LivCom Management Company is a UK Registered Charity. LivCom is non-political, embracing all nations and cultures, and over 50 countries have been represented within the Awards. Each year communities that have met at the Finals of The LivCom Awards have exchanged Best Practice and practical experience and have joined forces to address mutual challenges. These partnerships have inevitably lead to mutual technical advances and more effective use of resources, including finance, and the improvement of the quality of life within a community.

There are numerous advantages that result from participation in the LivCom Awards. It has recently emerged that success in the LivCom Awards may be advantageously quoted when applying for National or International funding.

The Environmentally Sustainable Project Awards are open to both the Public and Private Sectors and Partnerships of both. The objective of the Project Awards is to encourage Developers to have the same environmental objectives as communities.

Any person with a responsibility for the local environment, political or technical, has a responsibility to be aware of Best Practice beyond that of their own country. There is a duty to be aware of International Best Practice and this can best be achieved by participation in The LivCom Awards.

The LivCom Awards are the only forum in which International Best Practice may be observed and developed, and participation in the Awards is an investment in the future of a community.
