Early in the morning, the participating youth union members started the meeting by collecting plastic waste and rubbish at Binh Son - Ninh Chu beach area. This waste collection activity so significantly attracted the participation of a large number of the morning exercisers there that the City's Youth Union provided their commitment to regular organization of this environmental campaign in the future.
At the ceremony, the CPC Vice Chairman let out his call for the joint effort of the whole community in participating in the environmental protection activities such as ‘Saying No to disposable products’, the campaigns for environmental sanitation, waste collection and treatment, clearance for water flow, dredging canals, ponds, lakes and drainage systems; communication workshops/meetings on environment; plastic/nylon waste collecting and recycling; stopping littering at public and residential areas; using shopping baskets for reducing plastic bags; green tree planting and caring for environmental protection; the local enterprises and manufacturers’ reduction in plastic use, nylon/plastic packaging as well as increase in use of eco-friendly materials or recyclable and reusable plastic products, etc.
In particular, the excellent contestant who won against the other ones was found in the Ring Golden Bell contest with the topic "Green Living - Climate Change Adaptation". The organizers also gave rewards to the top ten of the contest and several gifts to the audiences who correctly answered the quizzes on environment, water resources, climate change, green living knowledge, etc.
After the contest, Dang Thanh Vu (Youth Union member of Dai Son ward, the winner) shared the contest brought him as well as the other youth members a good chance for self-studying and gaining more knowledge of environmental protection. He also appealed the other youth union members to join hands in environmental protection for a green - clean – beautiful city of Phan Rang-Thap Cham.
