The 'Let's Do It World' organisation, leaders of World Cleanup Day, have released their annual report, naming 2019 a 'transformational' year. Heidi Solba, President & Head of 'Let's Do It World', has congratulated World Cleanup Day leaders, network teams and partners. As The Skill Mill were the UK lead for World Cleanup Day, it is great to read such a fantastic report.
'Let’s Do It World' is a global movement that tackles the solid waste crisis by mobilising millions of positive-minded people into coordinated local and global actions. The 'Let’s Do It World' movement began in Estonia in 2008, when 50,000 people came together to clean up the entire country in just 5 hours. Today, the movement has grown into a network of 180 countries. Altogether, 56 million participants have been engaged in the movement’s activities to date.
'Let’s Do It World' works to organise World Cleanup Day and coordinate a network of up to 180 countries. Each country has their own lead. The Skill Mill are the UK lead, and are working together with 'Let's Do It World' to be global change makers. As a country lead, we support and coordinate World Cleanup Day events whilst moving the whole of the UK towards more sustainable solutions for the long-term.
The annual report found that:
- More than 21 million people from 180 countries around the globe came out to clear our planet of trash on World Cleanup Day 2019.
- 75% of Let’s Do It World's country leaders for World Cleanup Day were satisfied with the result of World Cleanup Day.
- 60% of countries believe they managed to raise awareness of waste pollution locally.
After such a successful 2019, The Skill Mill will be the UK lead for World Cleanup Day again in 2020.
