"Held in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Clean Up the World is one of the world’s largest community-based environmental campaigns with an estimated 35 million volunteers from 120 countries participating annually in environmental activities - ranging from waste removal and tree planting to water and energy conservation projects".
Clean Up the World, About
I am sad i didn't post this earlier, because this event is about developing a voluntary-cleaning-activity and sharing it on the website i'm showing below... so to take part in the global project there is an activity that needs to be prepared. I've participated before (last year) with my Scout Group, and it was a nice time, specially because we knew there were people doing the same in the whole world. And here, you can check all the initiatives that have been registered in the globe... and I'm sure there are plenty that have been not.

So, I know I'm letting people know late... if they didn't know, but we can join this campaign too! :) So, in my case... my idea goes not register anything because there is no activity set or a group of volunteers i will join; but anyway... we can take some time to help cleaning somewhere... anywhere! I already said I'm a scout... and to end this short post I'd like to share a couple of words of the founder of scouting, hope you can feel something towards the world we live in:
"Leave this world a little better than you found it".
