Be Our Partner to organise the Shorelines Cleanup Day (2017-2018)

Since April 2015, the Working Group has launched the Shorelines Cleanup Day to partner with the community to protect the environment and keep Hong Kong’s shorelines clean. Various organisations including schools, non-governmental organisations and commercial companies have joined and contributed to a cleaner coastal environment. This year, we will continue to look for partners to organise joint shorelines cleanup events. Our partners will be co-organisers of individual Shorelines Cleanup Days, mainly to look after the recruitment of volunteers, while we will provide on-site programme briefing on cleanup procedures and refuse data collection for the participants, necessary gears and materials (gloves, garbage bags, data cards, pencils, clipboards, portable scales, etc.) and, where necessary, land transportation. We will publicise the cleanup events on our website, and other interested individuals could contact the organising partners for participating in the cleanup events.

Please join us in keeping our shorelines clean and see how your action could help protect the marine environment. The cleanup days for April 2017 to March 2018 are as follows:
