Print

A ceremony to launch the 2013 Earth Hour campaign in Ho Chi Minh City was held in the Cultural Youth House on March 3.

It drew the participation of more than 1,000 volunteers from the city’s universities and colleges.

The message of this year’s campaign in Ho Chi Minh City is “Do more than just turn off power.”

Six projects will be carried out from now until Earth Hour at 8.30pm on March 23. They include Cycling for the Environment, 20 seconds for Earth Hour, Green Energy Street Quarter, Green Hands, Green School, and Ecological Roof.

The last of the projects, the highlight of the 2013 programme, will see a number of classrooms for underprivileged children have their roofs made entirely of recycled milk cans on March 16 and 17.

All the activities aim to raise public awareness of energy saving and the negative impacts caused by climate change.

On February 25, the Ministry of Industry and Trade announced that the 2013 Earth Hour Campaign will be from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on March 23. -VNA
