The Clean Games NGO hosted on 12-19 April a free online workshop for activists and NGOs for all countries in the Baltic Sea Region (Belarus, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Ukraine) on how to organize a clean-up competition.
For only a week the workshop students learned how to work with the Clean Games methodology and IT-platform. At the end of the webinar series they organized 8 test games for their friends and colleagues. Regardless of the thousand-kilometers distance, the workshop has helped the volunteers to find like-minded people from home cities and countries.
The workshop has united more than 50 eco-activists from Sweden, Germany, Latvia, Denmark, Lithuania, Poland, Estonia, Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and even hot Cameroon! The participants will take part in holding the Clean Games Baltic Cup in September.

What is the Clean Games project:
Clean Games are team competitions in waste collecting and sorting. During games players use our mobile app – just like Pokemon Go. Since 2014 more than 1000 games have taken place in 20 countries. Up to 1500 people take part in one game and collect 20 tons for an hour. On average a player collects 10 times more waste during Clean Games than during traditional clean-ups.
