Thrash plog­ging event in the sports after­noon on October 4, 2023

The Univer­sity of Eastern Finland, Savonia UAS, Karelia UAS, the SYKETTÄ sports service of higher educa­tion insti­tu­tions and Savo voca­tional college Sakky and North Karelia’s educa­tional commu­nity asso­ci­a­tion Riveria will jointly orga­nize the “Roska liikkuu” garbage collec­tion event in two provinces on October 3-4, 2023. Come and collect trash either alone or in a group. Let’s spread around cities and provinces!

The event is connected to a part sports after­noon on October 4. from 12:00 to 16:00.

Karelia’s students partic­i­pate in the campaign as part of the sports after­noon program, collect­ing trash by walking or running (plog­ging). We offer partic­i­pants garbage bags and gloves at the campuses’ event points. Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences event points are located in the main lobbies of the Tikkarinne and Wärt­silä campuses. There is also a limited number of garbage tongs and atten­tion vests. If you have your own garbage tongs or garden gloves, please bring them along.

Collected trash can be returned to the event point or to public/private trash cans.

We hope that after the event, each group or indi­vid­ual collec­tor will report the number of garbage bags they have collected in this survey.

The event was inspired by the Million trash bags campaign, and is a contin­u­a­tion of the Every­day small eco-deeds chal­lenge imple­mented by the Univer­sity of Eastern Finland and part of the university’s Respon­si­bil­ity commu­ni­ca­tion project.
