Mission statement

Our Mission is to inspire all sectors of society to take responsibility for creating cleaner, greener and more sustainable communities.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful is a charity working towards the vision of a cleaner, greener Northern Ireland by running environmental education programmes and awareness raising campaigns, increasing volunteering opportunities and reporting on local environmental quality.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful is part-funded by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs with the rest of its funding coming from private partnerships and the provision of services and training to Councils and other organisations.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful runs a range of awareness raising and volunteering campaigns including the BIG Spring Clean and the Clean Coast Programme as well as local environmental quality programmes such as international Eco-Schools and Blue Flag programmes, the Seaside Award, Borough Cleanliness Surveys and the Green Business Award.

Our work focuses on three main areas, our three ‘Es’:

  1. Environmental Education
  2. Engagement and Volunteering
  3. Environmental Standards
