THUA THIEN - HUE (VNS) — Campaigns to mark World Environment Day, which falls on June 5 every year, are being held in the central Quang Tri and Thua Thien - Hue provinces.
The campaigns raised awareness about responsible consumption and conservation of clean water.
The natural resources and environment ministry and local authorities in Quang Tri launched a social campaign yesterday evening, calling for responsible consumption, which could help in the conservation of natural resources.
The campaign's message was that some natural resources were running out and that recycling or conservation could help save nature.
Earlier, the education and training ministry launched another campaign among academic staff and students in neighbouring Thua Thien – Hue, to call for conservation of clean water and for sustainable community development based on stable water resources.
Deputy Minister Nguyen Thi Nghia said at the opening ceremony that she expected academic staff and students to change their habits with respect to consumption of water and paying attention to water resource protection.
The changes in their habits would influence people in their communities, and help spread the message of water conservation, she said.
After the ceremony, a rally of bikers travelled around the province's municipal city of Hue to spread the message. — VNS
