World Cleanup day
This year was Myanmar’s first time participating in World Cleanup Day. The Yangon offshoot of the worldwide event took place on Saturday, September 15 2018, and FMI was the diamond sponsor of the event. Teams from FMI and Yoma Group volunteered to help collect garbage in Yangon’s neighbourhoods, spreading awareness to create a cleaner and greener city.
Over 150 countries take part in World Cleanup day every year, making it the biggest civic action in history. World Cleanup Day in Yangon was jointly organised by Junior Chamber International Yangon, Trash Heroes, Clean Yangon and YCDC.
