Let's Clean Up Europe!
A European Spring Clean!
Every year, millions of tonnes of litter end up in oceans, beaches, forests and elsewhere in nature. The primary causes of this littering issue are our society’s unsustainable production and consumption patterns, poor waste management strategies and a lack of awareness of citizens.
Do you want to be part of the solution?
Join the Let’s Clean-Up Europe! campaign from 9 to 10 May 2020
The Let’s Clean Up Europe campaign is active throughout all European Countries. In order to have a bigger impact, this year the campaign will be concentrated in one single weekend on 9-10 May 2020.
By implementing clean-up actions you contribute to solving the littering problem but you also raise awareness about the amount of waste produced, the importance of waste prevention and waste reduction! Clean-up actions can be cammunicated under the Let’s Clean-up Europe (LCUE) flag!
Would you like to organise a clean-up? Register it through this form and join the movement!
The deadline to register an action is 26th April 2020.
How to organise a clean-up action?
- Identify the problematic place to clean, then get your contacts on board and register your action. If you want to go big you can set up a team and find some support or sponsors.
- On the clean-up day it’s time for action! Gather your team and start collecting litter, sorting it as much as possible! Share ideas about the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We also have a LCUE Factsheet with more details and ideas.
- Get more visibility by using our communication tools! You can download them here!
- Remember to take pictures, videos and to send your feedback to your Coordinator!
