Clean up the World this weekend

Thursday, September 18, 2008 at 3:20 PM


Clean Up the World Weekend is scheduled for September 19-21. Conducted by cleanuptheworld.org in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme, Clean Up the World Weekend is a global initiative that encourages people to come together to clean up and fix up local parks, beaches and trails. Google is serving as the technology partner this year, providing Google Grants funding as well as consulting services for the My Maps and Google Maps API components of the site.

Gather some friends and be one of the thousands who are working today to save tomorrow. Just log onto our new website, activities.cleanuptheworld.org, and follow the simple steps to:
  • Register your group/organization and its activity
  • Create a My Map of your activity
  • Distribute your map to encourage friends, family, and coworkers to help
  • Upload descriptions, logos, photos and videos related to your effort
  • View your activity on a world map of all planned activities
