Greenfriends Macau invites everyone to join the International Coastal Cleanup Day! The organization will team up with NGOs in mainland China and Hong Kong to organize a Pearl River Delta-wide coastal cleanup event. This event will help like-minded people around the region take concrete action regarding marine conservation.
Coastal Cleanup is not only cleaning up. According to International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the idea is to sort, classify the litter and do data record. Analysing the source of litter reminds people about coastal pollution. After the event, all participating regions will collect and assemble their data and discuss possible future solutions. Organizers are looking for volunteers to clean up the beach in Coloane! Forms are available on the event’s Facebook page. Deadline for applications ends on September 23.
When: 3:30pm–6:00pm, Saturday, September 29
Where: Beach next to Tam Kong Temple, Coloane Village
How much: Free admission
