Today Friday, we start to PLOGGA with our meeting point at the National Arena at 17:15 CET and run in direction of Åre Square. Erik Ahlström, a long-time Åre resident, is on site at Åre 2019 and will lead the activity.
- Obviously, you do not need to be runner to join PLOGGA, you can also walk, ski, paddle or cycle, move as you wish. What we are trying to do is to change people’s attitudes and behavior so that everyone picks up any trash they see. Everyone can be a proud trash picker, said Erik.
Friday’s Plogga event is the first of three, with the group moving from the Arena to Medals Plaza. On Saturday and Sunday, Plogga will start at Åre Square at 11:00 CET and finish at the National Arena just before the downhill races.
PLOGGA was founded in Sweden in 2016 and is both a club and movement that aims to promote the transition toward sustainable society. Plogga is currently active on all five continents and 45 countries. The movement’s aim is to create a clean world.
