Actually I think that the "clear desk policy" as a term would be the most useful. The reason being it is very "clear" and easy to translate, also based on the local culture And I can use the "multipurpose" which Lee suggested to explain the people why the desk should be "clear". Good, happy!

However please mind that Koreans are nearly an opposite of Japanese in the terms of "cleanliness" and organization. Most of the places are really messy, something what I have never seen in Japan. So in a way I'm introducing something quite pretty alien to them :-)

When I worked in software there was a "clear desk policy" or "clean
desk policy", usually designed to keep confidentiality. The idea was
to make sure papers weren't stacked up but to keep your desk surface
clear of paperwork.

I'm not sure if that fits your concept, but it sounds like you already
have the solution with "clean up after yourself."
