If you want to give back to planet Earth, register and participate in World Clean Up Day. This saturday, UAE residents have the chance to be part of a global movement by removing illegally disposed waste.
World Cleanup Day began in Estonia, in 2008. Fifty-thousand people united to clean up the whole country in just five hours. Since then, a global civic movement was born and spread around the globe. This inspired people to cleanup the planet using the ‘one country, one-day’ formula. The goal of the initiative is to promote a clean and healthy planet.
Last year on World Cleanup Day, 18 million people across 157 countries, (beginning in New Zealand and ending in Hawaii) cleanedup the world in 36 hours!
This year’s cleanup drive will take place at Aldar’s Reem Central Park
and Al Muneera Beach Plaza in Abu Dhabi.
The event will take place on Saturday, 21 September from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The venues open from 3pm, so get there early and collect your Cleaning Day toolkit (including a t-shirt, gloves and cleanup bags) along with an induction pack. Mascots Hamda and Hamdoon will also be there to keep you entertained.
See you on Saturday!
