How to spark a movement in 2 months with no money

BY DIANA BADEIAN
@ VOL 26 ON SEP 28, 2018

10 years ago in 2008 Rainer Nõlvak, an ordinary entrepreneur from Estonia, gathered four friends and suggested that they try to cleanup the whole country from illegal waste. The idea seemed insane, but 50,000 people came to the streets. The action grew into a large volunteer movement, which initially operated only in Estonia, but this year it is aimed to cleanup the entire Earth. 


This year on September 15, Armenia also joined the movement, and the presentation tells you just about that!
