The estimated 35 million volunteers, who take part in Clean Up the World, are taking responsibility for the environment – and the effects are felt not only in the community in which they take place, but right across the planet.
Our campaign theme - Our Place… Our Planet… Our Responsibility - highlights how local action – taken by every community and volunteer partaking in a Clean Up the World activity – has a global impact.
Activities to improve the environment in your place could include planting trees, cleaning parks or beaches, conserving water or undertaking environmental awareness raising or education initiatives.
2013 is the UN International Year of Cooperatives. Clean Up the World encourages member organisations to work cooperatively with local authorities, agencies and the community to make the health and well being of our planet and its people a priority. As an individual we can act locally to protect our environment and together we can make a difference in not just your town, but your state, country and the world!
Let’s share the spirit of cooperation with others this year and get more individuals, communities and countries involved to see what together we can make happen!
