The Republic of Mauritius, is a densely populated volcanic island of 1.27 million people, located approximately 2400kms off the southeast coast of the African continent in the Indian Ocean. It includes the main island, also called Mauritius, as well as Rodrigues, Agaléga and St. Brandon. Mauritius is 45km in width and 65km in length, covering an area of 2,040 km2, with coral reefs surrounding most of the 170 kms of coastline and an exclusive economic zone spanning 2.3 million km2. The capital and largest city of Mauritius is Port Louis.

Mauritius is known as a plural society where all the ethnic groups present: Hindus, Muslims, Creoles, Chinese and Europeans live in peace and where all the ancestral cultures have been preserved. These features make the island a unique place in the world and has a reputation for stability and racial harmony among its mixed population. Most Mauritians are bilingual being equally fluent in French and English. Oriental languages also form part of the linguistic mosaic.

The ‘Let’s Do It Mauritius’ (LDIM) is Mauritius’ national platform of the Let’s Do It World (LDIW), the global civic movement, with a mission to connect and empower people and organizations in 180 countries around the world.

The overarching aim of LDIM is to connect civic movements, the business community and government to work as organic whole in an endeavour to raise awareness and implement true change for a cleaner and litter-free Mauritius.

Back since 2011, the LDIM is spearheaded by the African Network for Policy Research and Advocacy for Sustainability (ANPRAS) [ https://www.anpras.org/home ], an NGO established in 2008, committed to driving change and community-based actions for sustainable development at grassroots.

The ANPRAS/LDIM platform has been organising and championing the World Cleanup Day since the first edition which took place in 2008, making it the biggest ever peaceful civic action against waste in human history.

On 19 September 2020, despite the uncertainty, challenges, pandemonium situation created by the pandemic covid19, over 14,000 volunteers, from all walks of life, teamed up to clean some 147 locations across Mauritius on the occasion of World Cleanup Day. A total of 59,211 kgs of waste were collected from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.

The next big global cleanup action will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2021.

Roll up your sleeves and be part of the solution!

Together, Let’s Do It!
