"Let's Do It" Cleanup Initiative Under Way at Rio+20 Conference19 June 2012
The undertaking is being carried out in the city's Garota de Ipanema Park. In addition, a group of divers will be performing an underwater cleanup, the ministry said in a statement.
Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, who is also taking part in the cleanup event, said that the undertaking is a good example of how a grassroots civic initiative, first lauched in Estonia in 2008, has gone global. This year there are almost 100 countries participating in the "Let's Do It World Cleanup 2012," he said.
"All of us want this kind of sustainable development. If each of us does a little bit, we can achieve a lot," the minister added.
