WILLEMSTAD- September 20, 2021 – Last September 18, a team of Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) staff joined forces with the personnel of 27 contractors participating in the “Kòrsou ta dushi i limpi” (Curaçao is Dushi and Clean) Cleanup effort on World Cleanup Day 2021. In total, the group consisted of 80 participants. The contractors’ participation in World Cleanup Day 2021 was voluntary. The teams tidied up the area around the former Jeanne D’Arc Huishoudschool in the Kustbatterij neighborhood. A clean Curaçao is also our commitment at the CTB—both for ourselves and for the overseas visitors coming to share our “dushi” island. Work started early in the morning around 7:30 a.m. and continued until approximately 12:00 p.m. A total of 47 200 (forty-seven thousand two hundred) kilograms of trash were collected over the day, requiring 11 dump-truck trips to the Malpais landfill. The CTB wishes to thank Curaçao Clean Up for coordinating the effort and hopes to stimulate the local community to participate in similar efforts, as well as to play their part in keeping Curaçao clean. Let’s make it a dushi and clean Curaçao. Together, we can do it! “Together, we can keep Curaçao clean!”
Curaçao had the honor of receiving 85 Argentinian travel agents as part of the 13th annual Copa Vacations Argentina convention.
