Announcement – ICCS 2015 Registration for Organisers
Mark the date – Sat 19 Sep 2015! – Organised volunteer groups and independent volunteers have been part of the International Coastal Cleanup program in Singapore since 1992. We are happy to welcome Organisers to this meaningful activity in 2015.
This year is the 30th anniversary of the international programme coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy in Washington DC, USA. Around the world on the morning of the third Saturday of September which is 19th September 2015, groups will conduct coastal cleanups to collect, categorise, record and remove trash from their shores.
The tidal height in Singapore (Sembawang) on 19 Sep 2015 is 1.19m at 8:07am, so the shores will be exposed at all sites and you an review this at sites.coastalcleanupsingapore.org.
Organisers can now register for participation and indicate your preferred sites and dates at registration.coastalcleanupsingapore.org.
The ICCS team will conduct the Site Allocations Exercise based on the Organiser’s experience with ICCS, earliness of registration, familiarity with the site, volunteer preparation, and site difficulty. The results of these exercises will be announced at the end of May and June and listed at status.coastalcleanupsingapore.org.
Registration will be close thereafter.
Workshops for Organisers in July
The workshop will conducted by the Zone Captains at NUS and are meant for Organisers and their assistants only. The workshop is critical for new organisers but also useful to veterans to participate and anyone who needs help in reviewing the site recce and safety assessment checklist.
There will be three small group evening sessions for you to chose from on Wed 1st Jul, Thu 2nd Jul & Fri 3rd Jul 2015. Simply indicate your intent during registration and we will confirm your attendance later. If July is inconvenient, indicate your availabie period and we will try to arrange additional sessions at more suitable times.
You can also organize cleanups at any other time of the year if you wish to! Please see Year-Round Coastal Cleanup guidelines, and contact us accordingly.
