The organisers and supporters of the Big Cleanup Action came together at the Riga Radio and Television tower on the 19th of January to discuss processing and further development of the project. It is the second year when Skonto Būve Ltd will be one of the general sponsors of the event. 

A big part of the activities are devoted to water, which is the theme of this year’s Big Cleanup Action. The goal is not only to clean the rivers and other big watersheds from pollution, but also to spruce up their surroundings.

Vita Jaunzeme, manager of the Big Cleanup Action says: “The Big Cleanup is an action which appeals to everybody’s sense of responsibility. It does not last for just one day. People who are involved in organisation of the action have been working for it since last autumn and the Cleanup, which will take place in the spring, is just the final event of the chain. We can all live in a more beautiful and better world if everybody takes responsibility for what they do in their thoughts and deeds.” 

Juris Pētersons, Skonto Būve project leader: We are honoured to be the general sponsors of the Big Cleanup Action for the second time. This year’s theme “water” is very up-to-date as we also run other projects related to water, such as“MillionTrout Return”, “Tar Ponds’ Treatment”, and others.

This will be the fifth year when the Big Cleanup Action takes place in Latvia, but the second year when the educational and the yard landscaping projects will be run simultaneously. 

This year the Big Cleanup Action all over Latvia will take place on the 21st of April. The President of Latvia Andris Bērziņš has agreed to be the patron of the action, thus continuing the tradition started three years ago.
