'Clean up the World' Weekend

The Environmental Safety Group organising Gibraltar's Clean up the World Weekend on 18th and 19th September 2005
Preparations are well under way for the “Clean up the World Weekend” campaign.

The Environmental Safety Group (ESG) has confirmed that in Gibraltar there will be over 25 areas cleared of litter, it will see marine sites cleaned by divers, cliffs to be cleared by abseilers, the greening up of mound area at Europa by GONHS, and today the British Forces is clearing areas of Europa Point.

Over 25 organisations and upwards of 100 registered volunteers will be involved in the clean ups. A final meet to co-ordinate all events will be held tonight.

The ESG registered Gibraltar as a member of Clean up the World which now has support from over 100 countries and more than 30 million people. It is hoped that this will become an annual event locally.
