Hanoi (VNA) – More than 200 youngsters from across the nation are taking a journey to islands in Truong Sa (Spartly) archipelago and platform DK1– an important economics-science-service complex from April 25 to May 4.

The “Green Truong Sa” programme is jointly held by the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the High Command of the Vietnam People’s Navy with the aim of promoting patriotism among young people and their determination to safeguard the country’s sea and island sovereignty.

Participants will join activities to seek measures to treat waste by microbiological technology, increase the coverage of trees and develop the flora system on islands, build environmentally-friendly architectures, and develop water processing machines which use solar energy and could provide 1,200 liters of fresh water per day.

The event also encompasses a number of art and cultural activities such as photo, poem and song composing contests, along with talks and documentary film screenings to review the glorious history of the Vietnam People’s Navy.

The money and gifts presented by organisations, businesses and individuals to support officials, soldiers and people in Truong Sa island district are worth over 3.5 billion VND (157,500 USD).-VNA
