Let's Clean Slovenia 2012

The biggest volunteer-based project in the history of Slovenia was inspired by a similar clean-up action, which happened in Estonia in 2008. The Estonians succeeded in carrying out the biggest environmental project to date - in only one day. Click here to see how they did it. A group of Slovenian volunteers called Ecologists without borderss decided to follow their example in 2010. The project was a massive success and you can read more about it in the final report.
 

With all the experience from the previous action, the preparations for 2012, as part of World Cleanup 2012, started already in the spring of 2011.
