World Cleanup Day is one of the biggest civic movements of our time, uniting 180 countries across the world for a cleaner planet. On 18th September 2021, World Cleanup Day will happen for the 4th time. Since 2018, 50 Million people have come out and cleaned their communities and the environment. In 2021 alone, let’s make it 50 Million!
World Cleanup Day on 19 September 2020 united 11 million people across 166 countries. All these environmental heroes came out despite the challenges of 2020. Since 2018, World Cleanup Day has brought together millions of people for the biggest waste collection day in human history. In 2018, 17.6 million and in 2019, 21.2 million environment heroes joined in on an epic 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe – beginning in New Zealand and traveling around the world before ending in Hawaii.
The Skill Mill will again be leading the event throughout the UK in 2021. Anyone is welcome to join us and organise a 'cleanup'.

World Cleanup Day Conference 2020
The Skill Mill attended the ‘Let’s Do It World’ international conference in Tallinn. The event brought together World Cleanup Day leaders from 100 different nations to work together to find solutions to environmental problems. All of the World Cleanup Day leaders share a common concern about the deteriorating environmental situation. The conference was a fantastic opportunity for the leaders to work together to find innovative solutions and share creative ideas.
