A Reflection on Clean The Spree 2019

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

Hi :) We are trying out a new format for this blog piece! Please let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or through our email.

The day began bright and sunny at 10 am at Treptowed park. We were humbled to see so many volunteers already there... so we got straight to it!

And there was lots to do... or rather, to pick up. We split the trash into three components: paper, plastic, and everything else.

After some time we stopped for a snack break. Look how the sun was shining on our (wonderfully sponsored) apples! (Thank you Lumenaza)

The bags started coming in...

Soon enough, 3 pm came around and we were done! Well done (and thank you) to the 200+ people who joined us and contributed to collecting close to 150 kg in trash...!

Next stop: ESMT for the Networking and Speaker Event. Meet our panelists (from left to right) Siert Maessen (host, and member of Net Impact @ ESMT Berlin), Georg Kössler (Member of Parliament and the Green party), Dr. Andrea Licata (CEO of TalentEco), Ritesh Mandavia (Founder of Clearago), and Lubomila Jordanova (CEO of PlanA).

Thank you panelists, for a dynamic and insightful conservation! And thank you ESMT for the great space.

And of course, a big thank you to the team at Net Impact @ ESMT Berlin! Look out for our upcoming events and programs, and we'll see you at Clean The Spree next year!
