The ‘Let’s Do It Foundation’ aims to unite the global community, raise awareness and implement true change to achieve our final goal – a clean and healthy planet. This is the motivation behind ‘World Cleanup Day’.
World Cleanup Day is held annually and is one of the biggest civic movements of our time, uniting 180 countries across the world for a cleaner planet. Each country has a dedicated leading team. In 2019, The Skill Mill in collaboration with Northumbria University was the UK lead and are proud to have been a part of the biggest World Cleanup Day to date! You can read the official press release here.
The Skill Mill will again be leading the event throughout the UK in 2020. Anyone is welcome to join us and organise a 'cleanup'. If you would like to join an event which another participant has organised, have a look at our all new 'World Cleanup Day Map'.

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.
