Celebrating World Environment Day

To celebrate World Environment Day RMIT University is hosting a clean-up event along the Merri Creek Trail in partnership with Friends of Merri Creek.

The clean-up will take place behind the Brunswick Velodrome.

The wider RMIT Community is invited to participate!
The Event will begin with an acknowledgement of country, followed by a safety induction, then collecting and sorting of litter.
We will also be recording waste stream data to contribute towards an ongoing project targeting source reduction - Rapid Response to Litter after Rainfall.
Look forward to seeing you there rain, hail or shine!
