Event description
Join JCI Dublin and Smurfit Kappa in cleaning up the city for World Cleanup Day - Saturday the 21st of September! Starting at Mountjoy Sq!

About this Event

On September 21 2019, World Cleanup Day, people in 150 countries will stand up against the global trash problem and clean up waste, making it the biggest positive civic action the world has seen.

We would love it if you would join us and be a part of it. (Also - scroll down for information on the social bit..)

This year, JCI Dublin are partnering with Smurfit Kappa to plan a WCD event that will reach even more volunteers and we're working closely with Dublin City Council to target the areas in Dublin City where we can make the biggest impact.

We're going to focus on North Dublin City, starting at Mountjoy Square Park and moving out from there.

All necessary materials, including gloves, litter pickers and hi-vis vests, will be provided on the day.

Let’s Do It!, the group behind World Cleanup Day, has never been only about cleaning up waste. We also aim to unite the global community, raise awareness and implement true change to achieve our final goal– a clean and healthy planet.

Accept the Challenge and be a part of it this September 21st.

The social bit! After the clean up, join us for a while at the Blue Fire Street Fest in Smithfield Square.

This World Clean Up Day is extra special as this year it also falls on International Day of Peace and it coincides with Smithfield's BlueFire Street Fest. The festival is a free open-air intercultural arts festival with a mission to promote social integration and cohesion amongst Dubliners across all cultural backgrounds. A perfect place for Jaycees to relax after a morning of cleaning up. :)

A little more detail....

2019 will see the festival and its community of young change-makers embrace a wider public discourse, exploring the impacts we have upon each other and on our planet.

The programme will feature the 'Global Village' food and crafts market and 'Health and Harmony' wellbeing fair, as well as a music and performing arts tent, street art murals and a speakers corner, an engaging talks and workshops programme, open dance classes, community group performances and a night time projection event; all free to the public.
