    International Coastal Cleanup

    International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is a global event initiated by Ocean Conservancy (OC) in 1986. It aims to engage citizens to remove trash and debris from beaches and waterways all around the world, identify the sources of debris, and change the behavioural patterns that contribute to pollution.


    The Green Council has been the official Hong Kong & Macau coordinator for the ICC since 2008. During the cleanup activities, data cards are completed by the volunteers, then we will comply and analyse the data collected. The final results will be published and used to educate the public, business, industry and government authorities about marine debris issue in Hong Kong. Through education and awareness of such issues will bring long term solutions and changes in behaviour.


    In partnership with Ocean Conservancy, ICC engages volunteers to

    • Remove and record marine debris collected from the beaches and waterways in Hong Kong

    • Identify the sources of debris

    • Change the behaviours that contribute to pollution


    ICC also provides opportunities for local environmentally concerned and responsible businesses to demonstrate corporate social responsibility within the community and build team spirit
