The Gibraltar Youth Service saw 35 club users supporting Clean up the World and their agenda of environmental progress in Gibraltar.

The young people were split into teams to clean up specific areas in the community which included Laguna Estate and Little Bay. The teams used simple but effective initiatives to clean up the sites.

In the build up to the clean-up, the youth clubs delivered a variety of interactive workshops on recycling with a key message stating “By recycling, we reduce the need to destroy habitats for animals and paper recycling alone saves millions of trees”. These workshops gave the young people an understanding of the importance of protecting and promoting a healthy environment across our community.

The Gibraltar Youth Service has further committed to this worthy project by investing in recycling bins at each of the youth clubs so members continue to reduce waste and contribute positively to the natural environment.
