Project details

On 27 August 2014, ICVolunteers will be organizing a citizen day to clean riverbanks and the lake in the Geneva area. This event is organized in collaboration with the City of Geneva. Its purpose is to mobilize citizens to collect waste at various locations in the City of Geneva, especially riverbanks that currently contain amounts of waste.

The aim is to raise awareness among Geneva citizens and nurture an approach to sustain the environment and reduce the risk of pollution of rivers (in this case the Rhône) and the Lake Geneva.

These efforts are part of the continuous efforts and activities of the GreenVoice program, which aims to raise awareness among citizens about environmental issues.

The Let's do it Campaign started in Estonia in 2008. Since then, 16 countries and more than 2.7 million people have used and adapted the campaign to encourage people to actively participate in sustainability environment.

This year's ICV initiative focused particularly on plastic waste and the terrible consequences of plastic when found in nature which pollutes the environment and is ultimately a danger to humans as well.
