Cleaning the world

At the first meeting of our exchange, there was an outdoor event we called "cleaning the world". We are aware that not only words, but most of all actions are important in the protection of the environment. In order to show that each of us can help our planet, we went for a walk around the area to clean it up as much as we could. Participants formed pairs or larger groups, received garbage bags and gloves, and then went for a walk along designated routes. As the minutes passed, their garbage bags filled with various garbage and the area became cleaner. Some groups came back very quickly and took more bags, which were filled just as quickly. Through this event, we showed that each of us has a significant impact on the environment. Good intentions and a few hands are enough to make our surroundings look better. Thanks to cleaning up our neighborhood, we become local heroes.
