Chimpion EN

You want to take action for a cleaner environment?

You don’t want the litter to spread all over the world and specially into rivers and seas?

You know friends and family who could join you and give a hand?

Why not become a CleanUP CHIMPion?
 
Pick your own date and spot between 1-22 March 2013 to organise your event.

Our Roots&Shoots groups are cleaning up their neighbourhoods all year round, but we invite you to join them between 1st and 22nd of March 2013 for a big national clean up campaign. In fact, the 22nd of March is World Water Day and we would like to be part of it!
wwwd2013
Water is the most important resource, and it has to be protected and managed with care, to assure the life of future generations. We were shocked to see in Chris Jordan’s film Midway, that our plastic litter can destroy the wildlife even thousands of miles away from any human activity. So that means, that every single action to clean up waste and of course to avoid waste, is beneficial for our planet and all living things! So join our campaign!

Ask you neighbours, fellow students, family and friends or company to join you to clean up the litter in your neighbourhood. You might choose a spot near a river, pond or lake to have an even greater impact!

Three easy steps to get involved:

Step 1 : Tell us by e-mail that you want to participate. Don’t forget to mention the location and the group name. We will add your group on our interactive map.

Step 2 : Become a CleanUP CHIMPion and collect the waste on the day of your choice between 1st and 22nd of March 2013. Take a picture of your action!

Step 3 : Register your event through our website before the 22nd of March 2013 at 18:00. Don’t forget to tell us how many participants there were, the number of bags you’ve collected and send us a picture of you and your team!

If you haven’t seen Chris Jordan’s film yet, you can find it here .

The map shows all locations where groups participate in this campaign!
