International Coastal Cleanup®

2023 ICC sponsored by Belfast Harbour

Join the global movement against ocean pollution with the International Coastal Cleanup!

For over 35 years, Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup has spearheaded worldwide efforts to cleanse coastlines and rid the oceans of plastics and debris. Thanks to the collective action of 17 million volunteers, over 350 million pounds of waste have been removed and documented, supporting crucial international research and policy-making.

On 16th September 2023, Live Here Love Here, the local coordinator for the campaign, hosted clean-up events along Northern Ireland's coastlines to promote a global day of action. Numerous volunteers came together to help protect our beaches and marine life from harmful pollutants.


Find a clean-up event that works for you on the ICC's interactive map. Don’t forget to tag #SeatheChange on social media and download the Clean Swell app to report your results.

Live Here Love Here is grateful to Belfast Harbour for providing funding that ensured all NI ICC events in 2023 operated at zero cost to the public. Learn more about their work here.
