Our Troop join "Clean Up the World 2015". This is not a national activity but a Global one. With the theme “Our Place… Our Planet… Our Responsibility”, the program is celebrated every September 20 worldwide.
The event is organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and supported by the World Organisation of Scout Movement (WOSM) as well as other NGOs. Brunei Darussalam Scout Association stated that the program aimed to give environmental awareness and understanding on the importance of cleanliness among the new generations.

This year marked the association’s sixth participation in the campaign since they first joined in 2010. About 200 members from 15 groups under the association took part in the event comprised of scout commissioners, scout leaders, cub, junior, rover, sea and air scouts from across the sultanate.
During the campaign they managed to accumulate around 350 kilogrammes of rubbish at the beach.
