The project ended in August 2022 but SATAKOLKYT continues in the youth services of the City of Helsinki!

Original SATAKOLKYT project was a collaboration between the Youth Services of the City of Helsinki, The Helsinki Metropolitan Area Guides and Scouts, NNKY of Helsinki, Helsinki 4H and Helsinki Green Youth. The collaboration project ended in August 2022, but the activities will continue within the Helsinki city youth services. That is necessary as the trash problem does not end! Actions for the well-being of the Bealtic Sea will be needed also in the future.

You can still book a beach for your clean-up:

The interactive cleaning map can be found here at You can see more detailed instructions above.
