Curaçao is part of the largest volunteer action in the world during the World Clean Up Day
WILLEMSTAD - Together with more than 150 other countries, Curaçao will participate in World Clean Up Day on Saturday 15 September. The goal is to dispose of as much waste as possible worldwide on that day and to draw attention to the pollution problem. Meanwhile more than 2,000 people have signed up to be part of the largest volunteer initiative in the world and they will roll up their sleeves that morning to make the island cleaner and more beautiful.
Last Saturday, all coordinators from the 47 areas that are part of the project next Saturday were gathered in a well-filled Audikor auditorium. There they were briefed by the organization to ensure that the upcoming CleanUp runs smoothly.
Registration closed, participation is still possible
The deadline to register is now closed so that the organization can focus on the logistics around the groups that have registered and the locations that will be cleaned on Saturday. However, if there are still those who want to participate and they have not registered yet, please let the organization know so that they can check which initiative those interested can still join.

Also, like every year, there are many companies that support this initiative with manpower, materials and financial resources, such as Antillean Scrap; Chogogo; CWM / JaJo; Digicel; Dyke transport; Ennia; Kooyman; MCB; Papagayo; Selikor; TrustMoore and Zanzibar.
