Come to Het Scheepvaartmuseum during World Cleanup Day 2023 or start a cleanup campaign in your neighbourhood!
Will you go out on the water together with Dutch top water sports enthusiasts to scoop plastic out of the canals? Or plastic fishing with your family and/or friends from boats made from recycled plastic? Or would you rather stay ashore and get to work with a skewer and garbage bag? Do you think you can collect the most garbage? Register now. After the clean-up, all participants are welcome to visit the museum for free!
Every hour, nearly ten swimming pools full of plastic end up in the ocean. This plastic soup is dangerous for all marine life. Animals eat plastic or get entangled in it. That is why the National Maritime Museum is organizing a clean-up campaign in collaboration with a large number of partner organizations to clean up as much litter as possible on land and in the water; on Saturday 16 September 2023 during World Clean up Day.
This cleanup campaign is an initiative of Clean up on Tour, Flying Fish Foils, National Maritime Museum, Naïf, Plastic Whale, Water Board Amstel Gooi en Vecht, Watersportverbond and World Wildlife Fund.
