Let’s Do It World (LDIW) is a global organization that has member organizations in almost every country and territory. World Cleanup Day (WCD) is the biggest event organized by LDIW.
Each country has a leader, or a group of leaders, who work day and night, often as volunteers, to mobilize the people in their countries for WCD.
Leaders come from all walks of life – be they strong women defying societal boundaries, environmentalists fighting for a better tomorrow, or organizations uniting concerned citizens.
Each country is affected by the mismanaged waste crisis in different ways. In some, waste is an issue managed by the government; in others, waste is something that the majority of the population is surrounded by.
Elsewhere, waste and recycling provides thousands of jobs; for some people, mismanaged waste is not such a huge issue and, in some countries, mismanaged waste becomes a matter of life and death.
Countries therefore address the issues surrounding waste that are most pressing for them. LDIW provides guidance, advice and leadership skills for anyone willing to commit time to the cause. The incredible leaders that we have are nothing short of heroes of our time.
WCD continues to engage an increasing number of people and places – over the last 5 years, it has taken place in 211 countries and territories with more than 89 million volunteers counting.
Let's Do It World is an accredited partner of UNEP and UNEA.
World Cleanup Day has been recognized with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Action Award for Mobilization and will soon be officially part of the UN Calendar.
