A sustainable living space at the Hanoi University of Science and Technology was opened on April 29, aiming to promote sustainable consumption practices in Vietnam.

Tran Van Nhan, Director of the Vietnam Cleaner Production Centre, said that the space is showcasing samples of 2,000 sustainable products that have been developed by Vietnamese and Dutch experts in cooperation with 500 businesses from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Businesses that want to expand their network and boost partnerships in the field can send their products to the space for display, he added.

The space will also offer a platform for people to practice sustainable consumption under the GetGreen Vietnam project.

Doctor Marcel Crul from the Dutch Delft University of Technology said that the space will open up opportunities for experts and businesspeople to share ideas, harbouring initiatives on sustainability and innovation.-VNA
