In 2009, Scouts from five countries of the Asia-Pacific Region namely, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Philippines and Singapore were featured on the Clean Up the World Activity Report 2009 recognizing their efforts and their commitment to the environment. To continue this success, we highly encourage our National Scout Organizations in the Asia-Pacific Region to register online by mapping their activities on Global Environment Map of the Clean Up the World.
Clean Up the World is one of the largest community-based environmental campaigns in the world. The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) has been an Ally with Clean Up the World since 2008. Held in conjunction with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), an estimated 35 million volunteers from 120 countries are now taking part annually, including many National Scout Organizations (NSOs).
Participants in Clean Up the World organise and carry out activities and longer-term environmental projects throughout the year however the campaign culminates with a special focus on the Clean Up the World Weekend September 17-19, 2010. The theme for this year’s Campaign is “Communities caring for nature”.
In 2010, Clean Up the World asks NSOs and Scout Groups to take action together, get back to basics and care for nature. Nature makes up a large part of the world we live in, from the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the parks we play in. NSOs can undertake activities such as waste reduction, waste education, tree planting, and water conservation or other environmental initiatives that will inspire others to care for nature.
