A beach of approximately 2800m² located just outside the project site was covered with washed up waste. A spontaneously organized clean-up effort took place on a Thursday morning instead of conducting another progress meeting. The effort does not only benefit the environment, but also the bond between the different contracts parties. After barely 30 minutes, the whole beach was cleaned and 10 cubic meters of waste was collected.
One added benefit was that everyone involved started the weekend with a good (deed) feeling.
Who says environmental awareness is a waste of time!
