Young Cyprus Greens and the Ecological Movement Cyprus are co-organizing together with the Youth Board of Cyprus and the Cyprus Youth Council, the annual beach clean-up campaign under the slogan “Wish you were clean”.

This year we are called to deal with the waste from dealing with the pandemic, due to the disposal of single use gloves and masks in natural areas and the sea, which will aggravate the problem of Mediterranean pollution.

Therefore, we are organizing a total of 4 beach clean-ups across Cyprus, to tackle pollution and preserve our natural environment.

During the clean-ups, all healthcare measures that will be applied are as follows:

👉 The maximum number of participants is 15 people.

👉 No buses will be provided for the volunteers.

👉 There will be antiseptics at the campaign’s sorting and counting station.

👉 All materials (gloves and bags) will be provided by the organizers of the campaign.

👉 Volunteers should have with them a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle.

The cleanings are under the auspices of the Commissioner for the Environment, Ms. Klelia Vassiliou.
