The event is promoted and organized by Legambiente, and again this year it is sponsored by UniCredit Group.
Clean Up the World (Puliamo il Mondo) is the Italian edition of Clean Up the World International, the most important voluntary environmental event of the world.
At its sixteenth edition, Puliamo il Mondo mobilizes people of all ages, schools and local councils, to clean and renovate many urban and extra-urban spoiled areas.
The objective of the initiative is to clean up and remove waste and trash from Italian parks, gardens, streets, squares, rivers, beaches and at the same time to promote waste sorting and environmental awareness.
In 2008, about 1.800 municipalities and approximately 500.000 volunteers among families, associations, teachers and students, participated in this event, cleaning up nearly 5.000 areas. For the 2009 edition, 1.042 municipalities and 182 local Legambiente clubs, have pledged to participate in the event; in addition 84.000 Puliamo il Mondo kits have been distributed and the number is expected to reach 100.000. The kit includes gloves, plastic bags, handbags, hats, flags and insurance coverage necessary to participate.
