More than 100 pupils from the Letterdoes primary school in Wyckerpoort worked together to clean up their neighbourhood. Together with Trajekt, the Salvation Army, MTB and the Buurtnetwerk they made a substantial contribution to the improvement of our local environment.
The #PickItUp initiative is a campaign from Maastricht Council and is carried out by the Centrum voor Natuur en Milieu Educatie (the Nature and Environmental Education Centre). They hope to encourage schools, local residents and community organisations to keep the neighbourhoods clean and tidy. They are also campaigning to increase awareness of the importance of a clean environment today to prevent pollution in the years to come.
