On 8 September 2022 at 08:00, the Clean Games – a team competition to clean up the green belt in which participants will compete in collecting and sorting waste – will kick off on the shore of Labour Bay on Russky Island as part of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum.

At the event, participants will compete in speedy litter picking, join a contest for the best find and receive prizes during the awards ceremony. Clean Games is a new and interesting format. The games, on the one hand, promote cleaning up the forest and water areas and, on the other hand, involve people in volunteering, environmental education, landscaping and teaching them how to interact with the environment in a sustainable way. Mindful approaches to environment and the planet’s resources contribute to economic growth that is not harmful to the environment and helps to meet the objectives set out in national projects in the fields of the environment, education, housing, and urban development.

“One of the themes of last year’s Eastern Economic Forum was 'Cleaning Up the Planet: the Circular Economy’. The Clean Games eco-project is involved in volunteer litter clean-ups across Russia and in 27 other countries around the world. We are extremely impressed by this wording. Furthermore, one of the key decisions during last year's discussion was to foster a responsible attitude to separate waste collection amongst the public and businesses, which directly corresponds to one of the aims of the existence of the Clean Games – the concept of sustainable development. We believe that the Clean Games at EEF 2022 should be a direct continuation of the 2021 discussion, and also complement the tracks of the Forum, dedicated to the environmental agenda of this year,” said Dmitry Ioffe, Chairman of the Board, Clean Games.

A training session on organizing and running the Clean Games was held in Primorye Territory last spring, soon followed by the first Primorye Territory Cleanliness Cup as part of the Russian Cleanliness Cup. All-Russia Clean Games championships take place every year, bringing together regions of our country to develop mindful approaches to nature, environment and the planet’s resources.
