Title of the project

Operation “Hauts de France propre”


Launched in 2012 in the Somme, renewed in 2013 and then in 2016, the Som’propre operation will be carried out from 2017 onwards throughout the Hauts-de-France region.

Over the course of a weekend, in partnership with the fishing federations and several thousand eco-citizen volunteers, the region’s hunting federations aim to clean up roadsides and nature in order to preserve the environment.

The Hunting and Fishing Federations organise the collection on the territories. Clean Hauts-de-France kits will be provided with the help of sponsors, including RTE and Crédit Agricole.
