Clean Up the World
Clean Up the World is an international campaign that encourages public to actively participate in care of their surrounding environment by organizing clean up events of their neighborhoods, parks, paths, river banks and streams, protected areas and eradications of illegal dumping sites.
The purpose of the campaign is not only to clean up, but also to raise public interest in the state of the environment and engage various interest groups, schools, private companies or municipalities or individuals in an active approach towards the environment.
The campaign was adopted in the Czech Republic in 1993 and is coordinated by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation ever since. About 35 millions of volunteers from more than 130 countries participate in the campaign annually.
