HANOI (VNS)— Ambassadors of the 2014 Earth Hour campaign yesterday joined some 1,000 students from Ha Noi University at an exchange programme to raise awareness for the cause.

Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, who is also an ambassador for the campaign, said he hopes young people will act more responsibly to protect the earth, starting with changes in their own daily lives.

Within the programme, participants took part in activities to promote the drive, including cycling around Ha Noi's streets and organising trivia contests on saving energy.

Ha Noi is planning a range of activities for the campaign. As part of its efforts, decorative lighting and neon advertising boards will be turned off from 8:30-9:30pm on March 29 at Ha Noi's major landmark venues. —VNS
