If you are in the Stockholm area on 8th April then why not consider joining us for a couple of hours to help clean up Långholmen island and then to enjoy a tasty BBQ together.

We’re holding this “Plogga” clean up event in support of this year’s Rotary theme of focusing on environmental sustainability.

Plogga is a movement created and followed by people with an urge to live in a clean world ( The word comes from the words picking up garbage and jogging mixed into one. Plocka (pick up) + jogga (jog) = Plogga. This is is exactly what Plogga is – picking up garbage while getting exercise in one form or another. Jog, walk, bike ride or even canoe if you like. All outdoor activities are allowed as long as you are able to pick up garbage as you get around.

We meet at Långholmsbadet on Långholmen at 10:00 where we’ll spend an hour plogging/cleaning up the island. Just after 11:00 we’ll then enjoy a barbecue back at Långholmsbadet. Please bring Swish or cash for the barbecue. Come as you are, in casual clothes or in trainers (if you want to jog). It may be a bit wet so we recommend robust shoes.

This event should be a lot of fun, we’ll have the opportunity to meet new friends and importantly, we’ll be contributing directly to a better environment.
