Clean Up Aberdeen is part of Keep Scotland Beautiful‘s national mass-engagement campaign Clean Up Scotland. Clean Up Scotland aims to involve one million people in action against litter and mess. It is a national coalition of organisations and people from all places and backgrounds who want Scotland to shine. The campaign is working to change long term behaviour by making dropping litter as socially unacceptable as drink driving is today.
The launch at the Beach Ballroom on March 21 will involve 16 schools, with young people from across the city getting the opportunity to ask important questions of a panel comprising representatives from the Council and other organisations with a litter and recycling theme.
More schools than ever before are taking part in Clean Up Aberdeen, with a range of challenges to choose from.
There will be a clean-up following on from the launch, with the pupils and teachers leading the way.
If you’re interested in taking part in the clean up, the intention is to start at 12.30pm and all are welcome.
