What is ‘Operation WE Clean Up!’ about?
The Keep Singapore Clean Movement is coordinating ‘Operation WE Clean Up!’, a one-day exercise to involve everyone in Singapore to demonstrate their support for a truly clean Singapore. On Sunday, 8 May this year, people in Singapore are invited to organise or take part in clean-up activities across island wide in a concerted national effort.
Why are we initiating ‘Operation WE Clean Up!’?
Through this one-day exercise, we aim to rally more individuals, schools, institutions and the communities to influence others to Keep Singapore Clean, reinforce the social norm on zero tolerance against littering and to garner support from the community for Keep Singapore Clean Movement.
What are the differences between the past ‘Operation WE Clean Ups!’?
In 2014, ‘Operation WE Clean Up!’ was localised in Bedok Constituency and the majority of the participants were KSCM partners and Bedok residents. More than 360 participants took part in the clean-up activity, and since then we have received feedback to organise this on a larger scale to create greater awareness and the importance of taking ownership of our environment.
In 2015, we intend to scale up the initiative to an island-wide scale by inviting everyone in Singapore to be involved in clean-up activities at various locations across the island. These locations are community areas which people live, work or play in; such as residential estates, schools, parks, offices and etc…
In 2016, this will be the second year we are organising 'Operation WE Clean Up!' on an island-wide scale. In addition to clean-up activities, we are inviting organisers to incorporate other complementary activities such as recycling and leading by example to practise tray return at nearby food outlets after their activity.
