Clean Up the World in the Czech Republic follows up on the international campaign, when groups of volunteers organize clean ups of their neighborhoods, parks, paths, river banks and streams, protected areas and cleanups of illegal dumping grounds/landfills.

The purpose of the campaign is not only to clean up, but also to raise public interest in the state of the environment and engage various interest groups, schools, companies or state administration or individuals in an active approach towards the environment.

Ever since the campaign was adopted in the Czech Republic in 1993, it has been coordinated by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation, one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the field of nature conservation in the Czech Republic.
