ABOUT WORLD CLEAN UP DAY
A goal that crosses borders and defies religious and cultural differences. World Cleanup Day is one of the biggest civic movements of our time, uniting 157 countries across the world for a cleaner planet. World Cleanup Day on 15 September 2018 united 18 million people across 157 countries and territories for the biggest waste collection day in human history. An epic 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe – beginning in New Zealand and travelling around the world before ending in Hawaii.
In Bali, Suksma Bali helped to organize the 2018 World Cleanup Day. The event was held on 15 September 2018 involving 27,000 participants across the island. The next World Cleanup Day will take place on 21 September 2019. On that day volunteers and partners will come together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of everyday people to achieve incredible things by coming together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens to business, and the government.
