In September, the headquarters opened with a walk to collect waste in the "Quebrada Altavista y La Cangreja" in Medellín, an urban green zone in the centre of the city. This waste was then put through the "Mini Relleno Sanitario" process and used to create recycled waste based bricks. The community benefited by becoming aware of the necessity of waste reduction, observing different farming alternatives, wastewater purification, reforestation, restoration of eroded soils, forest protection and learning to grow and harvest healthy foods.

Commencing in February 2 on International World Wetlands Day, a clean up and a tree planting activity was conducted at the Ventanilla Wetlands and Villa Marshes, both located to the north of Lima. Approximately 7 tonnes of waste was collected from the clean up activities. The day also presented the opportunity for Scouts to learn of the importance of conserving wetland ecosystems. Scout groups from Ventanilla, Los Olivos, Ancón, Chorrillos, San Juan de Miraflores and Chiclayom all participated in the event. Later in the year, Scouts across the Lima district came together again to participate in Clean Up the Word Weekend. As part of the weekend's activities, Scouts worked with The Miraflores Municipality, on September 19, to conduct a series of clean ups at selected municipal parks and hold an awareness raising campaign promoting healthy habits such as using bicycles as means of transport. An estimated 1,000 Scouts and members of various community groups took part in the weekend activities.
