On September 15, 2018, the world celebrated Cleanup Day. In Russia, many cities hosted Clean Games, an event that combines cleaning and recycling efforts in a game format. MSUBS Bachelor students traditionally participate in Clean Games in September, and the games that took place in Zhulebino Park this time were no exception: 13 out of 40 participating teams were made up of MSUBS students.
The game was opened by its traditional sponsors, Gazpromneft Oil Refining Factory and Hometowns, a Gazprom social investment programme. The teams did an impressive job, gathering about 3 tons of recyclable waste within the three hours of the game. Moreover, all trash was sorted to be recycled later on. The competition at times yielded surprising results: among the unusual finds was a purse with a passport and a Rosneft Staff ID. The find was passed into the game headquarters and, with the help of local police, the owner was located before the game was over.
The competition was tough and we are proud of the two MSUBS teams that took the first two places. The main outcome of the game, however, is in the fact that after such major cleanup efforts none of the participants would ever be careless with their own trash and will watch out for others as well.
