World Cleanup Day 2019 united more than 20 million people in 180 countries. On that day volunteers and partners worldwide again came together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
How can organisations participate in World Cleanup Day on 19th of September?
- Group cleanups.
Cleanups will be organized where possible and allowed. Organizers may gather people for cleanups with a recommendation to restrict the number of participants and to spread cleanup locations out so as to avoid people coming in close contact with too many attendees.
- Individual cleanups
As an alternative to large gatherings, people can be invited to clean their surrounding areas with their families or individually without massive gatherings
- Digital cleanups
If you find you are restricted in your country, or the situation doesn’t look favourable for traditional cleanups, or you want to engage target groups with a higher risk for COVID-19, we propose a clean up you can do within your own home - digital cleanup, deleting digital trash from your gadgets. Find out more about digital cleanup here and here are materials on how to organize it.
