''World Cleanup Day'' is a campaign started by ''Let's Do It! World'' global civic movement. It has developped around the idea of mobilising large numbers of people for one-day nation-wide cleanups to remove illegally dumped waste. The model was pioneered in [[Wikipedia:Estonia|Estonia]] on 4 May 2008 with their nation-wide cleanup called ''[[Wikipedia:Let's Do It 2008|Let's do it!]]'' (in [[Wikipedia:Estonian language|Estonian]]: "Teeme Ära!") engaging {{val|50000}} people or 4% of their population, cleaning up {{val|10000}} tons of waste in one day.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.teeme2008.ee/ |title=Teeme ära 2008 |date= |access-date=2020-05-16}}</ref> Over a decade, the movement has spread to practically all countries of the world and mobilised millions of people to participate in cleanups.

==Purpose of World Cleanup Day==
 
==Purpose of World Cleanup Day==
Global problems related to waste are immense and tackling them goes beyond governments and institutions. Massive global citizens' engagement is what World Cleanup Day aims for and the slogan '''Let's do it!''' summarises the urgency, self-initiative and cooperation necessary to address the problem.  
+
World Cleanup Day aims to raise awareness of the mismanaged waste crisis by mobilizing all spheres of society to participate in cleanup actions. Individuals, governments, corporations and organisations are all encouraged to take part in cleanups and to find solutions to tackle mismanaged waste. There are numerous organizations that facilitate and host World Cleanup Day events globally. Like [[w:Earth Day|Earth Day]], World Cleanup Day is non-partisan, apolitical, and is not affiliated with any national or global [[w:political party|political party]] or discrete [[w:ideology|ideology]].<ref>"[http://www.thejournal.ie/world-cleanup-day-ireland-4224661-Sep2018/ 'Communities will be united': Groups around Ireland to take part in World Cleanup Day"]. ''The Journal''. 09/09/2018.</ref>
As organisers say on their official website: "Let’s Do It World has never been purely about cleaning up trash. Our vision is a clean and healthy waste free planet. We tackle the environmental challenges related to the mismanaged solid waste crisis by mobilizing millions of positive-minded people into coordinated local and global actions."<ref>[https://www.worldcleanupday.org/about/ World Cleanup Day official website]</ref>
 
And also: "World Cleanup Day harnesses the power of people around the world to achieve incredible things by joining together. Its beauty lies in cooperation and collaboration: building bridges between disparate communities, and including all levels of society – from citizens to business, to government."
 
  
==History of Let's do it! World==
+
==History of World Cleanup Day==
The movement started at an informal meeting of friends eager to do something to solve the problem of illegal waste dumping in Estonian forests and littering in towns. As they were pondering how to organise a nation wide cleanup, one of them, Rainer Nolvak, said: "Yes, we'll clean Estonia, but we'll do it in one day!"
+
The first attempt to organise a global cleanup took place in 2012 and engaged 96 countries, but the total number of participants has not been accurately assessed. Between 2013 and 2017, the total number of participants globally has not been summarised even though national cleanups were organised in an increasing number of countries.
This triggered a series of meetings and leading to the formation of a team that held the campaign and finally, on 4 May 2008 the cleanup took place. The story spread to other countries and the movement rapidly gained momentum, reaching 90 countries by 2012 and 180 countries by 2018.
+
At annual conferences, organised by the ''Let's Do It Foundation,'' the idea of coordinating a World Cleanup Day matured in 2017, and it was first launched in 2018. These conferences were a crucial driver of the global movement from 2011 to 2020, bringing together to 250 people from as many as 90 countries.
The core team in Estonia with varying degrees of cooperation of colleagues from other countries had navigated the development of the movement over the years, supporting national teams with annual conferences, courses, academies, promo materials, graphic design, know-how, training etc.
+
[[File:zSW_n9UC_400x400.jpg|thumb|World Cleanup Day logo.]]Since 2018 a new graphic design was adopted with the new name: '''World Cleanup Day.'''
Since 2013, the connection with [[Zero Waste]] movement grew and in the later years with some other movements too, such as [[w:Earth Day|Earth Day]], [[w:Greenpeace|Greenpeace]], [[w:The Ocean Cleanup|The Ocean Cleanup]] etc.
 
  
== The identity of Let's do it! World ==
+
==Scope of {{PAGENAME}}==
In some countries, the campaigns used the original graphic identity and the name, either in English or translated to their own languages, while others have chosen different names and graphic identities and the extent of affiliation with the Estonian Let's do it! World organisation.
+
World Cleanup Day took place in 180 countries by 2020. In many of those countries, the campaign is organised in partnership and involvement of hundreds of organisations (both government and non-government), institutes, schools, universities, kindergartens etc.
 +
For the most time the movement has been spreading by a combination of the targeted efforts of the staff and volunteers from ''Let's Do It Foundation'' in Estonia and mostly scattered efforts by individuals and organisations around the world.

=== World Cleanup Day in numbers ===
 +
Participation in World Cleanup Day over the last years was the following:

*Indonesian cleanup in 2018 engaging 7 million participants
Until 2018 the movement didn't have an official global franchise or membership, so national organisers were free to decide how to liaise with the initiators from Estonia. This has resulted in a diversity of adaptations of the graphic identity and execution of national campaigns around the same core concept of ''mobilising as many people as possible to pick waste on one day.''
 
 
 
In most countries the campaigns were grassroots initiatives, coordinated bottom-up by teams of volunteers. Young urban people concerned about the environment are frequently at the core of the campaign. Participants are typically [[wikipedia:Volunteering|volunteer]]s, with coordination from [[w:non-governmental organisations|non-governmental organisations]] who assist in awareness-raising, logistics, and fundraising.
 
 
 
In some countries, the initiatives have later grown into stable organisations with substantial budgets and employees, repeating the nation-wide cleanup annually and developing various other projects, while in other countries the initiatives fluctuated, sometimes organising the cleanup only once, often on a much smaller scale -- regionally or locally. Collaboration with other organisations and businesses varied greatly from country to country.
 
 
 
==Membership==
 
''Let's do it! World'' is a highly inclusive movement and it is easy to qualify for membership. While national coordinators are encouraged to organise large cleanups emulating the model of the most successful countries, small local cleanups are just as welocme under the banner of ''Let's do! World.''
 
 
 
The Let's Do It Foundation has been the driver of the global movement from 2011 to 2019. The crucial element for the growth of the movement were annual conferences organised by the Let's Do It Foundation bringing together each time up to 250 people from as many as 90 countries.
 
 
 
From 2018 on, a more global structure has developed with membership and a democratic process held by the global network itself, establishing its own decision making structures. The team in Estonia has split into two parts, one supporting the global network of cleanups under the identity of ''World Cleanup Day,'' and the ''Let's Do It Foundation'' started focusing on the newly formed ''Keep It Clean Plan,'' based on the principles of the circular economy, and embedding Zero Waste practices.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.letsdoitworld.org/about/overview/ |title=Let's Do It World website |date= |access-date=2020-05-16}}</ref>

An example of the pollution that World Clean Up Day aims to clean up.

World Cleanup Day (aka WCD) is an annual global social action campaign aimed at combating the global solid waste problem and the problem of marine debris. It includes litter cleanup and waste mapping activities spanning every time zone. It is held on the 3rd Saturday of September annually in nearly every country in the World. The last World Cleanup Day was 19 September 2020, and according to the organisers 11 million participants joined the cleanup in 165 countries.[1]

Overview

World Cleanup Day was started by Let's Do It World global civic movement in 2018. It has developed around the idea of mobilising large numbers of people for one-day nation-wide cleanups to remove illegally dumped waste. The model was pioneered in Estonia on 4 May 2008 with their nation-wide cleanup called Let's do it! (in Estonian: "Teeme Ära!") engaging 50000 people or 4% of their population, cleaning up 10000 tons of waste in one day.[2] Over a decade, the movement has spread to practically all countries of the world and mobilised millions of people to participate in cleanups. From the beginning in 2007, until 2020 the movement has spread from Estonia to over 180 countries and engaged more than 21 million volunteers.

Purpose of World Cleanup Day

World Cleanup Day aims to raise awareness of the mismanaged waste crisis by mobilizing all spheres of society to participate in cleanup actions. Individuals, governments, corporations and organisations are all encouraged to take part in cleanups and to find solutions to tackle mismanaged waste. There are numerous organizations that facilitate and host World Cleanup Day events globally. Like Earth Day, World Cleanup Day is non-partisan, apolitical, and is not affiliated with any national or global political party or discrete ideology.[3]

History of World Cleanup Day

The first attempt to organise a global cleanup took place in 2012 and engaged 96 countries, but the total number of participants has not been accurately assessed. Between 2013 and 2017, the total number of participants globally has not been summarised even though national cleanups were organised in an increasing number of countries. At annual conferences, organised by the Let's Do It Foundation, the idea of coordinating a World Cleanup Day matured in 2017, and it was first launched in 2018. These conferences were a crucial driver of the global movement from 2011 to 2020, bringing together to 250 people from as many as 90 countries.

Since 2018 a new graphic design was adopted with the new name: World Cleanup Day.

Scope of World Cleanup Day

World Cleanup Day took place in 180 countries by 2020. In many of those countries, the campaign is organised in partnership and involvement of hundreds of organisations (both government and non-government), institutes, schools, universities, kindergartens etc. For the most time the movement has been spreading by a combination of the targeted efforts of the staff and volunteers from Let's Do It Foundation in Estonia and mostly scattered efforts by individuals and organisations around the world.

World Cleanup Day in numbers

Participation in World Cleanup Day over the last years was the following:

  • in 2018, 17.6 million people from 157 countries[4] Over 88500 tons of waste was collected.[5]
  • in 2019, 21.2 million people from 180 countries[4] Over 100000 tons of waste was collected.[6]
  • in 2020, 11 million people from 156 countries
  • in 2021, the campaign will take place on 18 September 2021
