Earth Day 2012 - Dahab rubbish hot spots clean-up

Dahab, Egypt

Like much of Egypt - and many other developing nations - Dahab has a rubbish problem.

During the Dahab Bedouin Festival, we are collecting locations of 'rubbish hot spots' (around collection bins, etc). On 18 April - designated Environmental Day for the Festival, and also very near to Earth Day, we'll tackle as many hot spots as we can.

The clean-up will focus on the residential area Assalah in particular, where local people are facing an extreme rubbish problem.

To sign-up, email Or come to the Festival Tent at the Floodway, 3pm 18 April. See you there!
