Cleanup at areas of the venues for 2020 Olympics.

by greenbird

Summary

We are an NPO based in Japan and carry out cleanup activities by 85 teams all over the world. In order to boost the momentum of the Tokyo Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games in 2020, We want to recruit volunteers from inside and outside Japan and to form 37 teams of clean-up activity. Then we clean up at areas around the 37 venues from now on. While spreading Japanese cleaning culture to many places, we want to make the most beautiful Olympic Games ever with local communities.

Challenge

I heard that when the Olympic Games are held all over the world, scattered garbage after that is a big problem. In Japan, the city is clean with the power of volunteers. Expanding the activities of volunteers towards hosting the Olympic Games, we aim to become the most beautiful Olympic event site ever. And we would like to have guests from all over the world comfortable.

Solution

We will organize volunteer teams with local community people and foreigners, and we will clean up daily from now. And we will clean up at areas around the 37 venues where the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held. (For making a team, it costs $2,000 to buy 50 sets of uniforms, gloves, garbage bags etc... We are also planning to investigate the amount and type of garbage around each venue and propose an appropriate installation point for the trash can to the local government.

Long-Term Impact

Even after the Olympic Games are over, the volunteer team will remain and clean the areas on a daily basis. Based on the survey data of the garbage which we open, we would like to urge people to pick up garbage. Then, a new community is created, in which various people such as young and old, disabled, foreigners, LGBT and so on are mixed. For many foreigners who came to the Tokyo Olympic Games, I would like them to return to their country and start cleaning up activities.
