In 2006, Clean Up the World is encouraging participants to pay particular attention to the state of the world's deserts and the contribution our actions can make to combat desertification. Members are encouraged to plant trees, implement energy and water conservation initiatives and remove rubbish from the environment as part of Clean Up the World Weekend, September 15-17, 2006.
Clean Up the World originated in Sydney, Australia in 1993 and is held in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
