Clean Up the World Weekend is the focal point of the Clean Up the World campaign where year-round environmental programs are celebrated and is a time of action when millions of volunteers undertake activities such as removing rubbish from the world's streets, parks, beaches and forests and planting trees.
From national clean up campaigns to community recycling and water reuse projects, volunteers conduct a variety of environmental projects throughout the year with activities culminating over Clean Up the World Weekend, this year celebrated on 14 - 16 September.
Clean Up the World, held in conjunction with the United Nations Environment Programme, mobilises an estimated 35 million volunteers from more than 120 countries annually to clean up, fix up and conserve their local environment.
