International Coastal Cleanup®

2023 ICC sponsored by Belfast Harbour

Join the fight against ocean pollution with International Coastal Cleanup!

Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup has been leading a global effort to clean up coastlines and remove plastic and debris from the ocean for over 35 years. With the help of 17 million volunteers worldwide, more than 350 million pounds of waste have been collected and recorded to aid in international research and legislation.

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. Many volunteers joined us as we worked together to protect the sandy shores 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.

If your group or organisation is interested in hosting an event as part of International Coastal Cleanup, get in touch.


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.
