Regular version of the site

1.5 kilometres

of shoreline along the Moscow Canal were cleaned by volunteers taking part in a workday organized by members of the HSE Yacht Club in the Moscow Region town of Dubna.

Although the area cleaned may seem small, they filled an entire Kamaz truck with trash left by beachgoers. They also cleared the granite steps leading to the water that had become overgrown with grass and moss. Along with members of the Yacht Club, volunteers from the HSE’s ‘Golden Vyshka’ movement and students from the Moscow State University of Mechanical Engineering (MAMI), Moscow State University and young yachtsmen from the local Academic yacht club took part. In total, there were approximately 30 volunteers.
