LETS DO IT! WORLD CLEANUP DAY
This year, JCI has committed to increase awareness for peace in communities worldwide with the Act for Peace: The 2019 Peace is Possible World Tour that mobilizes young people to participate in peace actions and initiatives all around the world. As World Cleanup Day 2019 will take place on 21 September—the International Day of Peace—JCI will be actively promoting all activities around World Cleanup Day as part of the Act for Peace Tour and encourage young people to participate in local clean-ups and stand up against global waste pollution, because without a clean world, we cannot have a peaceful one.
To build peace in our communities, JCI will continue to collaborate with Let’s Do It! World to mobilize thousands of young people around the world to raise awareness of sustainable waste practices and their importance for a peaceful world. This collaboration will commit to working together to achieve the ultimate goal of keeping our planet clean by connecting all sectors of society and bringing fundamental changes around the world.
This ongoing collaboration will further build on the success of the first World Cleanup Day that took place on 15 September 2018 and mobilized nearly 18 million people from 157 countries, who collectively created one of the biggest civic actions against waste in human history. Driven by a mission to create positive change, JCI members around the world actively supported World Cleanup Day by participating in local clean ups in 67 countries. This momentum led to JCI receiving an award for Best Leading Partner on World Cleanup Day 2018 by the Let’s Do It! Foundation at the 2019 Clean World Conference.
About World Cleanup Day: World Cleanup Day is a global cleanup event organized by Let’s Do It World aiming to make the world a cleaner place and raise awareness of the harms of mismanaged waste through cleanups and campaigns in participating countries across the world.
