Gotthard Cleanup Day

Cleanup campaign in the moated castle of Europe

“Gotthard Cleanup Day”

On the next World Cleanup Day, which will take place on Saturday, 18 September 2021, many people will clean the springs and alpine passes in the Gotthard region. For this purpose, the association “Gotthard-Connects”, as well as the tourism organisations Andermatt-Urserntal, Leventina, Obergoms and Sedrun-Disentis, are calling on volunteers to help with the “Gotthard Cleanup” campaign to clean up the mountain routes around the alpine passes and water sources on the Gotthard, Oberalp and Grimsel.

Every year, vast amounts of rubbish end up in the world’s oceans. Millions of tonnes of plastic pollute nature. Much of the rubbish ends up in the oceans via rivers. Every year, various organisations organise a clean-up day where millions of people around the world get involved in ridding our world of rubbish. The association “Gotthard-Connects” would like to participate and has brought the tourism organisations around the Gotthard on board for this purpose.

Water is our elixir of life. We should take care of our springs!

Since there are several alpine passes and springs in the Gotthard area, several cleanup teams will be on the road at the same time. The areas of operation are: Gotthardpass-Reussquelle, Oberalppass-Rheinquelle and the Grimselpass down to Obergesteln. The teams will meet at around 10 a.m. and are expected to be finished at around 4 p.m. Details such as the meeting point, time and programme for each area of operation can be obtained from the individual tourist offices.

The moated castle is also happy if you would like to clean a section yourself. Please inform us so that we can provide you with a waste bag at the meeting point.

Set a sign for our water and support the protection of the springs by actively participating in the action and registering for this purpose at the tourist office in Andermatt, Airolo, Goms or Sedrun by September 16:
