Date of the event: 
Sunday, 24 February, 2019
Goal of the event: 
The aim of the Clean Walk was to do a good action for the environment with a group of people (locals and strangers together).
Short description of the event: 
The purpose is to clean a small part of the city (Nantes, France) during three hours, in groups of 5-6 people in order to raise awareness about the disaster pollution can cause. Trashes were everywhere, and it shocked many of us. I think it can be a good reminder for many people to not forget to put their trashes in bins and to sort them. The international students seemed to appreciate the event. We were in collaboration with a specific association whose purpose is to do clean walks in many cities in France for the same reasons I explained here.

Duration of the volunteer activity: 
Number of international students: 
Number of "locals" involved: 
Number of ESNers involved: 
We contact the association Cleanwalker to know if we could join them on the same date (we wanted to do it February, 23rd but they planned to do one the 24th. They accepted and then we didn't have to organise a lot of things beside the registration of international students and communication of the event.
The association Cleanwalker took care of the gloves, garbage bag, the circuit of the walk, the division in groups (organised by type of garbage), and the collection of trashes by the municipality.
It went very well. There were not as many international students as we expected (but it was the holidays). They were 4, and the whole group of clean walkers reached a hundred of people. It was a great day under the sunshine, with good moods and motivation.
