World Cleanup Day
The World Cleanup Day was on September 19, but is being celebrated all month long. Some members have already hosted clean-ups, and more are to come. As part of this, the group is asking members to share their unique and interesting treasures by sharing on social media with #seawhatifound and #EMSEAAtlantic. The results will be shared here on the EMSEA website.
About Coastal Clean-ups
The clean-up of a seashore can bring communities together, as well as enable volunteers to learn more about the marine animals and environment. It can also provide an opportunity to find the most extraordinary things washed up on the shore. In the past, EMSEA members have found messages in bottles, rubber ducks, bowling balls, and mini-boats that have drifted the currents across the Atlantic. World Cleanup Day harnesses the connection, cooperation and collaboration of people by bringing volunteers and partners together on one day to help rid mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers and streets.
August – International Youth Day
