09 November 2023
World Cleanup Day is a global event that involves millions of people annually in cleaning up the environment. The City of Helsinki provided litter pickers, trash bags, and a light snack on five locations scattered across the city. Organizing the event was a joint effort of BALTIPLAST project, Baltic Sea Challenge, Litter Control Action Plan, Urban Environment Division and Park Pals, a volunteer citizen group cleaning the parks in their own neighborhood. This local action was a successful initiative with approximately 150 interested volunteers visiting the different sites.
