  • CLEAN UP THE WORLD Radio Broadcast 17th September 2015


    In today’s broadcast we would like to update you with more details for this year’s Clean up taking place on the 26th September.
    Although the global date of the 19th falls on this coming Saturday, organisers felt it necessary to delay this in Gibraltar and so our day of action will be the 26th.

    We are very happy to confirm that we have over twenty teams ready to go, and as many sites to be tackled.

    Naturally the Clean up Campaign aims to achieve real longterm change and as such the ESG, as main organisers of this event locally, also takes up all these issues throughout the year using media, talks and input at the Litter Committee forum to push these forward. Issues such as littering, dumping, waste management and facilities, civic pride, are on the agenda. Others under the spotlight are specific hotspots, issues of enforcement and culture change, and better information and community engagement on these matters via a sustained litter campaign.

    The ESG will hold a key Team Leaders meeting on Tuesday 22nd September at 7pm, at the Charles Hunt Room, John Mackintosh Hall. All leaders are asked to attend.
    A short presentation on “where we are now”, as well as future aims and plans will be delivered together with a briefing on logistics for the day of action itself on the 26th September.

    Gibraltar is proud to once again be taking part in a phenomenal global environmental campaign of action and awareness raising under the Clean Up the World banner. This campaign has and will continue to deliver green dividends for us here on the Rock as well as taking responsibility for marine litter issues and driving the agenda forward for improved waste management at a very practical level. Much depends on individual action on a day to day basis also and our clean up attempts aims to improve how and what we each do with our rubbish whenever we raise the Clean up banner.

    26th September – but please get in touch no later than the 24th and by email providing mobile number, age and fitness.
