Roberto Cavallo, technical director of the World Team Plogging Championship, states,
“With the introduction of the team world championship, we add a new discipline to the World Plogging Championship, following trail plogging and urban plogging. An additional opportunity for a sport that is becoming more and more widespread. We are confident that the World Team Plogging Championship is going to be a success as well, and that we will meet in Italy to compete for the first team gold award – of course, in the name of a cleaner world!”.
The World Team Plogging Championship represents a further step forward for this discipline which combines sport and environmental protection, gaining more and more supporters and enthusiasts worldwide, day by day. The first three editions of the individual World Plogging Championship, held in Italy in Val Pellice, Val Chisone (the Olympic Valleys), and in 2023 in Genoa, were indeed successful. Requests and proposals from various takes, along with the awareness that this discipline can be a formidable catalyst for spreading the values of sports and environmental sustainability, as well as those of teamwork and participation, prompted the World Plogging Championship organizing committee to launch this new competition, eager to involve many teams and countries.
