Neighbourhood Clean Up Day

DATE: 4 April 2021

PLACE: Parks and streets

COMMITTEE: Environmental Rights Committee

The Neighbourhood Cleanup Day is part of the Restore Our Earth campaign run within the framework of the Earth Day 2021.  With this project we aimed to show that the solution to the global environmental crisis starts by taking small and localised actions that have an impact on the environment. Our small step was plogging; a new trend where picking up trash is combined with jogging.

We wanted to illustrate that individuals do not have to be environmentalists, activists or experts to make a difference for the future of our planet. We asked our volunteers to clean their streets, beaches, rivers, forests, parks and neighbourhoods.
