Every year millions of tons of waste end up in oceans, on the beaches, in the forests or simply abandoned in the environment. The main causes are the dizzying pace of production and the type of consumption, both unsustainable patterns that however belong to our society. In addition, the waste management strategies and the lack of awareness on behalf of the population intervene to worsen the scenario. In order to reduce the littering in nature and to give visibility to the problem, the EWWR coordinates Let’s Clean Up Europe, the first clean-up campaign coordinated at the European level. AICA is the European Secretariat of Let’s Clean Up Europe, on behalf of the Italian Steering Sommittee.
