A raft of activities are to be held in the central Da Nang city from May 31 to June 14 in response to the World Environment Day and Vietnam’s Sea and Island Week 2015.

The event will include a meeting to celebrate the World Environment Day, World Oceans Day and Vietnam Sea and Islands Week and a walk responding to the environmental event. A drill on coping with oil spill will also be held.

Localities and organisations will organize campaigns to clean up beaches and disused lands with the participation of an estimated 6,000 locals.

Da Nang city has seen big change and standout development after six years implementing a project to turn it into a green city.

The city is leading the country in waste management with 93 percent of all its solid waste collected and 100 percent of medical waste treated before dumping, while 98 percent of waste water from local industrial parks is collected and treated.

The rate of greenery in the city reached 6.02 s.qm per person last year.-VNA
