WORLD CLEANUP DAY 2019.jpg

Dear young ship Tanzania members,

We would like to invite you on WORLD CLEANUP DAY AND WORLD PEACE DAY on 21st of September at Mbezi Africana, Beach near White sand Hotel.

While cleaning up waste, and beautification of the environment are important and essential practices, unless there is a systemic change that leads to the reduction of waste generation, these efforts will be futile. Cleanup activities have to be supported by concrete steps that lead to a drastic reduction in the quantum of waste generated, and we need to ultimately change public mindsets to ensure that the need for cleaning becomes a thing of the past.
With the above background, we can focus on a campaign to reduce the waste generation within the member organizations, with a 45-day long rollout, focusing on waste reduction.
World Cleanup Day is celebrated on the 21st of September. The first world cleanup day was celebrated on 15th September 2018, wherein 18 million people from over 158 countries took part. Over 88500 tonnes of waste was collected. Members of the YOUNGSHIP TANZANIA also participated in this event last year.
This year, the World Clean Up Day coincides with World Peace Day. As per their mission statement, the movement is not solely about cleaning up trash, but about raising global awareness and implementing lasting changes to end the global waste epidemic.
Objectives
•Encouraging waste reduction within member organizations and urging them to move towards a zero-waste lifestyle
•Creating awareness regarding waste generation and related issues
•Creating an environment within the organization that encourages reduction in generation of waste as opposed to clean up
•Rethinking of organizational priorities to greatly reduce generation of waste
•Starting a conversation about needless buying, and consuming products from sustainable brands.
