SDGs and River/Marine litter problem
Arakawa River Clean-aid is an activity in which various people pick up litters thinking about river/marine litters, water quality, nature restoration, etc., and trying to regain rich nature. Above all, picking up litters with thinking with team members bring all of participant realizations.
From SDGs 17 goals, we set target 6 “Improve clean water and sanitation”, target 14 “Develop life below water”, target 15”Advance Life on Land” as three highly important targets, and aim to solve river/ marine litter problem by partnership.

By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.
By 2020, protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes.
By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.
By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements
Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships
Why Arakawa River?
There is the term environmental problem.
But think carefully. Is the environment itself causing the problem?
“People” are the cause of many environmental problems. The effects of Arakawa Clean-aid are not limited to the Arakawa River basin.
- A program that changes people through “field activities”
- Model project for solving river/marine litter problem targeting Arakawa River with a population of 10 million people
- The point that the marine litter problem is a trans-boundary problem
- A place to experience partnerships with NPOs through activities
Arakawa River Clean-aid (cleaning activity) is a tool to think about things from a broad perspective.
