Let’s Do It Foundation and JCI signed Memorandum of Understanding

In 2018 we are going to change the world. We are going to tackle one of the greatest global challenges there is – the world’s garbage!

JCI is a membership-based nonprofit organization for young active citizens aged 18 to 40 dedicated to positive change in their communities. Through projects in more than 5000 communities, across more than 125 countries.

“During the JCI World Congress in Quebec, Canada, an official Memorandum of Understanding was signed. JCI members seek targeted solutions to local problems, creating a global impact and are therefore a perfect partner for us. Let’s Do It! is all about bringing people together and strengthening communities to take action for a better society and environment,” commented Eva Truuverk, a long term JCI member and the Member of the Board of Let’s Do It Foundation.

“The collaboration between JCI and the World Cleanup Day campaign shows how active citizenship within local communities can unite all sectors of society and citizens for a global sustainable impact. World Cleanup Day is specifically addressing illegal waste, because it’s a problem that effects us all. We encourage all Let’s Do It! activists around the world to connect with their national JCI teams and establish an alliance to build a strong local campaign,” Truuverk added.

Let’s Do It! World is a civic-led mass movement that began in Estonia in 2008 when 50,000 people united together to clean up the entire country in just five hours. Since then, Let’s Do It! has spread this model—one country in one day—around the world. To date, 113 countries and over 16 million people have joined us to clean up illegal waste.

On September 8, 2018, World Cleanup Day, people in 150 countries will stand up against the global trash problem and clean up waste, making it the biggest positive civic action the world has seen.

The history of Let’s Do It and JCI

Let’s Do It! was founded in 2008 in Estonia by members of JCI Estonia, the Estonian Green Movement and Skype. Up to date, members of EC2006 COC team are playing a significant role in the success of Let’s Do it! By today, Let’s Do It! has become a global movement encompassing 113 countries, and more than 17 million people who have participated in cleanups worldwide. The goal of this grassroots global network is similar to JCI – to initiate positive change at a local and global level. But we have a very precise focus – we are working together towards a clean, healthy and waste-free world.  Because we believe that working together, hand-in hand, is the most powerful tool to tackle global problems and initiate real change in the world.

What is World Cleanup Day 2018?

On September 15th, 2018 a wave of cleanups will start in the morning with first sunrise, sweeping around the globe, until we can celebrate a clean world, cooperation and friendship in Hawaii at the evening of the same day!

We expect every country to engage at least 5% of its population in the cleanup action, to pick up millions of tons of illegal garbage. It’s very powerful and symbolic action to prove that we take responsibility in the countries we live in. Preparations should start now in order to have enough time to map all the illegal garbage with apps, engage people, organisations and governments.

Be a true leader in your community and make a real impact on the world! This is your life-time chance to really change the world!

Initiate a project in your country and involve at least 5% of the population in the one day cleanup.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
