Youth center of epirus: the coordinating organisation of the worldwide movement Let's Do It! in Greece

One of the fastest-expanding environmental movements in the World - Let's Do It! This movement was born in 2008 in Estonia, when 50.000 people came together to clean their country during one day. They managed to collect 10.000 tons of illegal garbage and that inspired the people from many different countries to do the same. By today, more than 100 different cleanup actions,involving more than 9 million volunteers, have already taken place in different countries.

Greece joined the movement of Let's Do It in 2012 with involving around 20.000 volunteers in clean up actions all around Greece. Already in 2013 the number of volunteers increased up to 35.000 and in the year of 2014 Greece plans to involve at least 50.000 volunteers.
