A photo exhibition “Discover World Heritage” is underway in Hanoi to increase the community’s awareness of heritage conservation.

The event was jointly organised by the Vietnam Office of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and Vietnam Panasonic Ltd Co.

At the opening ceremony on October 18, UNESCO Representative in Vietnam Katherine Muller Marin highlighted the responsibility to protect and conserve the world’s valuable heritage.

UNESCO’s mission in Vietnam is to promote the country’s eight world heritage sites and other globally recognised legacies.

On the occasion, Vietnam Panasonic Co. honoured 15 outstanding students as part of its annual drawing competition on environmental protection.

A series of experiments on Green technology were displayed for students to widen their knowledge on production technologies and energy conservation.

Additionally, the short film “Ngay Tho - Innocence”, produced by students from Phan Chu Trinh secondary school, won first prize in a film-making competition.

The exhibition is running until October 25 at 19C Hang Dieu Street, Hanoi.-VNA
