Retake Roma volunteers unite with Estonian embassy to clean up Rome
World Cleanup Day will be marked in Rome on Saturday 15 September in an event organised by Retake Roma, the volunteer movement which tackles the capital's urban decay, in the area around the river Tiber between Ponte Duca d'Aosta and Ponte Milvio.
The initiative, which begins at 10.00 on the Olympic Stadium side of Ponte Duca d'Aosta, will involve volunteers collecting rubbish before separating it for either recycling or regular waste disposal.
The Rome event is supported by Rome's embassy of Estonia whose citizens are currently celebrating the centenary of their nation's declaration of independence.
For details of the initiative, which is open to all, see Facebook page while for insights into the Retake Roma movement see Wanted in Rome feature article.
