Clean Games aims to engage local communities and raise environmental awareness by running ecological tournaments. Participants compete in litter collecting and waste sorting. These events take place as an open-air festival with music, a host and fun activities. The project has a real impact: the participants make green areas and coasts cleaner by collecting up to 5 tons of litter per event, and the most important part, by inspiring a wide audience to embrace ecological habits in everyday life. Clean Games took place in 300 cities in 17 countries across the globe since 2014.
Clean Games Baltic Cup took place for the first time on 21 September 2019. The event has gathered 578 players and was held in 6 countries within the Baltic Sea Region. More than 8 tons of garbage were collected during the Baltic Cup.
The second edition of this event, Clean Games Baltic Cup 2020, will be held on 19 September. The methodology has been adapted to social distance rules and has already been tested it in different cities.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
