What is Starfield?

Starfield is the first new universe in over 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.

World Cleanup Day: A Global Movement for a Cleaner Planet

Born in Estonia in 2008, World Cleanup Day is now a global event where millions unite every third Saturday of September to combat the waste crisis. Spanning over 190 countries, volunteers take to streets, forests, beaches, and rivers to remove mismanaged waste and litter. More than just a cleanup, it’s a call to action—raising awareness, changing habits, and driving policy changes. Together, for one day, we make a world of difference. Join us and be part of the solution!

Why World Cleanup Day and Starfield Partner: A Universe United for a Cleaner Tomorrow

In a groundbreaking collaboration, World Cleanup Day (WCD) and Bethesda’s Starfield come together, fusing the vastness of space exploration with the immediate urgency of our earthly responsibilities. As adventurers explore the far reaches of the universe in „Starfield“, they’re reminded of our collective duty to protect and sustain our home planet.

Both entities recognize the significance of responsibility. Just as players gather resources across galaxies, we must also treasure and responsibly manage the resources on Earth. Sustainability isn’t just an earthly goal but a universal one. In the spirit of WCD, Starfield emphasizes the importance of collecting resources, not wastefully, but with purpose.

Moreover, upcycling isn’t just a trend; it’s a necessity, both on Earth and in the vast cosmos of „Starfield“. By giving waste a second life, we champion the principle of renewal, resonating in-game as players repurpose what they find across space.
Join us in this epic partnership. Embrace a future where gaming meets global action, where we play responsibly, and where our adventures in the virtual universe translate to tangible change on our beautiful blue planet.
