International Coastal Cleanup will be conducted around the world on Sat 21st Sep 2019
The International Coastal Cleanup is the annual data-gathering exercise held on the 3rd Saturday of September. It is coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy globally and it has been conducted in Singapore since 1992. This year, the tides are suitable for us to conduct the exercise with the rest of the world on Saturday, 21st September 2019.
Invitation to Organisers to register
We invite Organisers to register and indicate your preferred sites and dates.
- First check the availability of and other details about your preferred site at coastalcleanup.nus.edu.sg/sitestatus.
- Then please register online
The ICCS team will review applications in end-May, end-June and end-July. All sites have limits to participants based on terrain, size and impact. Sites are allocated based on the site difficulty level, the Organiser’s familiarity with the site, experience at managing cleanups, their volunteer’s age group and preparedness, and the date of your registration.
Organisers will be notified of the results by email.
Registrations will close at the end of July.
Workshops for Organisers in June and July
Workshops for Organisers and their assistants will be conducted by ICCS Zone Captains at NUS in July. These 2.5 hour workshops will provide Organisers with a grasp of marine life and marine trash issues globally and in Singapore, discuss the various steps in organising a coastal cleanup and allow Organisers to arrange for site recces with their zone captains.
Anyone who needs help in reviewing the site, conducting the safety assessment checklists must attend. While critical for new Organisers, the workshops can serve as a refresher for veterans who would contribute to the group discussions with peers.
The workshop registration options will be sent to registered Organisers in May. We will offer a sufficient number of sessions for all to attend.
Organising coastal cleanups on other dates, without data collection
If you are interested in conducting a year-round cleanup at other times of the year (without data collection), please examine the options listed at this page with several wonderful local groups: http://coastalcleanup.nus.edu.sg/yearround/
