Clean Up Campaign at the Scandinavian Forest

Friday, October 2, 2015

The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) is organized clean up campaign at the Scandinavian forest for the second time with the aim of raising public awareness on the need to stop littering and to preserve nature reserves from pollution, according to RSCN.

RSCN has invited people, including children, to take part in the campaign.

The clean-up campaign is part of the 2015 Clean Up the World Campaign, which started in 1989 when Australian yachtsman and builder Ian Kiernan, appalled by the amount of rubbish he came across while sailing, organized a clean-up of Sydney Harbor.

The campaign went global in 1993, with Sydney becoming Clean Up the World headquarters, gathering hundreds of members from around the globe, ranging from local community groups to national campaigns, who carry out environmental projects throughout the year, according to its website.
