Hanoi (VNA) – The seven-day Challenge – Eat, Move, and Live Sustainably was launched in Hanoi on April 10 in response to Earth Day 2018 (April 22) themed “End Plastic Pollution”.

The event, co-organised by the United Nations, the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam and the Live & Learn Environmental Education Centre, calls on people to live, eat and move smartly and sustainably to improve life quality. It has three spells, starting from April 10, April 17 or April 24 and last for a week.

UN Resident Coordinator in Vietnam Kamal Malhotra said the UN Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development requires not only commitments of governments but also strong efforts of 7 billion people worldwide.

Vietnamese singer My Linh, Ambassador of the campaign, talked about her family’s lifestyle in scientific and eco-friendly way.

During the challenge, participants could eat vegan or choose locally-grown produce, travel by bicycles or go walking instead of riding vehicles with fossil fuel, or seek ways to save energy and reduce wastes at home.-VNA
