Tallinn Conference Promotes a Greener, Cleaner World
Let's Do It!, the successful, grassroots, trash cleanup initiative that Estonians have taken global, held its latest worldwide conference in Tallinn, Estonia on January 13 – 15 with the aim of preparing for this year's projects.
The Let's Do It! movement started in May 2008 when approximately 50,000 Estonians mobilized to remove illegal garbage from roadsides, forests and towns. Over the course of the five-hour event, the volunteers managed to collect 10,000 tons of waste.
The concept has since spread to 85 countries on five continents.
Organisers from 45 countries gathered at the Let's Do It World conference, held at the Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia, to share ideas and experiences in the run-up to World Cleanup 2012, a series of local, national and regional cleanup events due to take place from March 24 until September 15.
