Clean Up The World
Did you know that the World Organization of the Scout Movement is an official ally of Clean Up The World?
Scouts Australia is encouraging Aussie Groups to take part in Clean Up The World this year by registering and mapping out an environmental activity on the www.cleanuptheworld.org website. Registration is free and participants receive information and materials to assist with the promotion and implementation of environmental activities.
Based in Sydney, Clean Up the World is an Australian initiative created in the wake of the success of Clean Up Australia Day, first held in 1990. It is a not-for-profit, non-government, apolitical organisation that unites communities with a common focus to clean up the world. The Clean Up the World campaign is held in conjunction with Primary Partner UNEP.
Watch the Clean Up the World 2012 Campaign and Ian Kieran AO, Executive Chairman and Founder of Clean Up the World welcome you to the 20th year of the campaign.
Clean Up the World encourages participants across the globe to conduct environmental activities on or around the weekend of 14-16 September 2012. The 2012 Clean Up the World theme was “Our Place...Our Planet...Our Responsibility.” The estimated 35 million volunteers, who take part in Clean Up the World, are taking responsibility for the environment – and the effects are felt not only in the community in which they take place, but right across the planet.
The campaign theme - Our Place… Our Planet… Our Responsibility - highlights how local action – taken by every community and volunteer partaking in a Clean Up the World activity – has a global impact.
Activities to improve the environment in your place could include planting trees, cleaning parks or beaches, conserving water or undertaking environmental awareness raising or education initiatives.
International Year of Cooperatives
2012 is the UN International Year of Cooperatives. Clean Up the World encourages member organisations to work cooperatively with local authorities, agencies and the community to make the health and well being of our planet and its people a priority. As an individual we can act locally to protect our environment and together we can make a difference in not just your town, but your state, country and the world!
Let’s share the spirit of cooperation with others this year and get more individuals, communities and countries involved to see what together we can make happen!
Help Spread the Word
Participating groups can undertake activities such as protecting water sources, planting trees, reducing waste, education and awareness raising.
“By joining Clean Up the World, communities become part of a movement for positive change for the environment,” said Clean Up The World founder Ian Kiernan.
As in previous years, the Asia-Pacific Region Office of World Scouting would love to receive stories and photos of Scouts’ involvement in Clean Up the World for purposes of publication. You can submit your story to National Environment Adviser, Gus Lloyd, on email@example.com, or enter your story in the ongoing regional contest “Tell the Story: Scouts are Making a Difference”.
