On Wednesday 18 September, the Australian High Commissioner, Jenny Da Rin, visited Melemaat Primary School to launch the 2019 Clean Up the World campaign.
Having a cleaner and safer environment by reducing, recycling and reusing are the messages for this year’s Clean Up the World Campaign.
For the second year in a row, the Australian High Commission, Live & Learn and the Bank of the South Pacific (BSP), are working together to advocate for a cleaner Vanuatu.
Clean Up the World is a yearly community-based environmental campaign in which millions of volunteers from communities around the world join together to clean up and conserve their environment.
“In Vanuatu, we are promoting actions to preserve Vanuatu’s pristine environment for everyone to enjoy now and into the future,” said Commissioner Da Rin.
“It is important to build on this weekend’s Clean Up the World campaign and work together to improve our waste situation and keep Vanuatu beautiful.”
The Australian High Commission has been organising activities with schools and communities for years to help advocate for a greener Vanuatu. The Australian High Commission is also taking actions to limit its own impact on the environment in limiting, and recycling its waste.
Clean Up the World is an Australian initiative that now gathers millions of people around the world to clean up and conserve the environment. It is held each year on the third weekend of September.
