World Cleanup Day Finland team member Sami Soininen cycled almost 2.000 km’s on his bicycle from Helsinki to Arctic Circle to meet Santa Claus. Sami left on the 20th of August and arrived on the 14th of September to the city of Rovaniemi, just next to the Arctic Circle. At exactly the same time Rob Curnow and his team of volunteers cleaning up a shoreline near Melbourne, Australia were rewarded with a surprise snowfall.

The Let’s Do It! World Cleanup movement began in a Northern European country with a total population of 1.3 million people, which is the size of the city of Palembang or Adelaide. Today this initiative has grown into a global event involving 156 countries and more than 20 million volunteers.

World Cleanup Day events can be followed through the homepage www.letsdoitworld.org. The 24-hour, non-stop World Cleanup Live Show will cover the cleanups across the globe. The show is hosted by Irish TV presenter and producer Colm Flynn and TV presenter Zihlo Ndlovu from Zimbabwe and will be broadcast from Tallinn, Estonia. It will be aired via the World Cleanup Day website https://www.worldcleanupday.org/ and also via Facebook and YouTube channels.

 

The year 2018 marks 100 years since the founding of the Republic of Estonia. World Cleanup Day 2018 is Estonia’s biggest gift to the world on its 100th anniversary. More information about the centenary events can be found at www.EV100.ee
