About Clean World Conference

This is a high point of the Let’s Do It calendar, when the inspirational and dedicated teams and partners from across our 158-country network come together to connect, learn, inspire and plan for a cleaner future.

The number of participants has grown year-on-year and 300 participants from more than 90 countries are expected this year.

Who is expected to participate?

We hope to see at least two representatives of each country that participated in World Cleanup Day 2018

Mentors and ambassadors of these countries and areas

Existing and new partners of Let’s Do It Foundation and World Cleanup Day

Does it cost anything to participate?

You need to arrange your own visa, as well as the transport to Tallinn and back. Regarding accommodation and food and local transport, we will cover it to one participant from each of the 158 World Cleanup Day 2018 participating countries and territories.

All other participants need to pay 400€ per person to cover their food, accommodation and local transport during the conference. Please ask your country team leader to confirm your participation and provide information about the process.

Moderators – Colm Flynn and Kadi Kenk

Colm Flynn is an award-winning Irish radio and TV presenter with a passion for telling stories. Constantly traveling the world, you can see him on Irish TV screens where he is a reporter on the hugely popular ‘TODAY’ show! Over on the BBC World Service, Colm reports on a show called ‘OUTLOOK’ where he meets inspirational people who have amazing stories to tell. These interviews are broadcast to 22 million people around the globe on the BBC network. “I get such a thrill from traveling the globe and meeting new people. I’m constantly in awe of how humans can thrive in the face of adversity and I feel lucky I get to share their stories with the world.”

Colm also is one half of the superhuman duo who presented our epic 24-hour non-stop live broadcast during World Cleanup Day


Kadi Kenk is managing global partnerships for World Cleanup Day to help Trash Blind SEE trash and take action for a clean planet. She joined Let’s Do It Foundation in 2011 as a volunteer focusing on South Europe and North African engagement in the movement.

In preparation for World Cleanup Day, she has formed collaboration on the level of the EU, the UN, global volunteer networks and corporations. Kadi performs as a public speaker most often on the topics of community engagement and civic empowerment on the road to solving global problems.
