The Let’s do it! campaign is the biggest volunteering project in the world that was initiated in 2008. Since then, it has been organized in 91 countries with 22.128 points of garbage dumps mapped on the world trash map. This project is engaging and brings together millions of volunteers from over 100 countries cleaning up their countries.
Cyprus participated this year for the first time in this campaign. On 29th of September 2012, the ‘Let’s Do It Cyprus’ team took the initiative to the clean up waste from the island’s countryside in a single day with the help of volunteers from all over the island.
Rotaract Club Nicosia Aspelia and Rotaract Club Nicosia joined their forces for this cause. Early Saturday morning all Rotaractors from Nicosia got together and cleaned up waste in a designated area in Aglantzia near the buffer zone.
In this way both Clubs helped to raise awareness, educate and improve attitudes of Cypriot citizens towards waste, recycling and environmental protection. Moreover this project aimed to improve the recycling habits of citizens and support a sustainable society in Cyprus.
The cleaning session was followed by a fellowship lunch where both Rotaract clubs had the opportunity to bond and exchange their experiences on past and future projects.
Let’s do it again next year!
