Update: April, 19/2014 - 08:51

HCM CITY (VNS)— A day-long programme to mark Earth Day will be held tomorrow at Crescent-Phu My Hung in HCM City's District 7.

The programme will feature a flash mob calling for nearly 50,000 fingerprints to support a non-littering day, a photo contest related to a marathon, an eco bag exchange, and an exhibition of environment friendly products.

A music concert by the Deaf Community Organisation of HCM City is scheduled to be held that night.

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22 in more than 180 countries with hundreds of millions of participants.

It was first organised in the US in 1970.

In 2009 the UN recognised the event as a global one.— VNS
