HA NOI  (VNS) — The EU Delegation to Viet Nam gave five quiz participants from Ha Noi, HCM City and Da Nang awards yesterday for answering questions about climate change on its Facebook page.

The quiz, which ran between June 18 and 24, gathered more than 1,000 entries.

Each day the delegation asked two multiple-choice and one open-ended question. The open questions touched on different climate change issues relevant to Viet Nam, including the impact of climate change in Viet Nam, how to educate children about saving energy, and ways to reduce the use of plastic bags and carbon dioxide emissions caused by motorised vehicles.

"I am delighted to see that so many Vietnamese, especially young people, have enthusiastically participated in the quiz," said Franz Jessen, ambassador of the EU Delegation to Viet Nam at the award ceremony.

"This shows the awareness and concern Vietnamese people have about climate change – a pressing issue the whole world is facing."

The five winners were awarded bamboo bikes produced by a Vietnamese company, Mekong Creations, which is sponsored by the EU Delegation and the embassies of Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The quiz was part of a series of events organized by the EU Delegation to Viet Nam in collaboration with EU Member States' embassies of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK to mark European Climate Diplomacy Day on June 17. —VNS
