Public are invited to clean Lisbon’s Algés Beach

Lisbon’s Algés Beach right next to the Race Village will be given a makeover on Saturday from volunteers led by the Volvo Ocean Race’s Keep the Oceans Clean! team.

The public are invited to join the beach clean and help clear up rubbish washed ashore as part of Keep the Oceans Clean!, the Volvo Ocean Race’s global campaign to encourage action against the pollution swirling in our oceans, threatening sea-life and washing ashore on beaches across the world.

Volunteers take part in a local beach clean to help raise environmental awareness. The rubbish found will then be transformed into art with the help of artists Skeletons of the Sea and displayed in the Downtown Miami Race Village. - IAN ROMAN/Volvo Ocean Race

If you’re interested in joining in the beach clean, meet at the main entrance to the Race Village at 0900 local time.

Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The waste materials found on Algés Beach will be used for the Skeleton Sea sculpture which will be created by artist João Parrinha at the Keep the Oceans Clean! workshops during the Lisbon stopover.

These will be held at the Keep the Oceans Clean! Dome in the Race Village from June 3 to 9.
