HA NOI (VNS) — The first Global Youth Summit (GYS) Winter to be held in Viet Nam was inaugurated in Ha Noi today.
It is being attended by 200 young people from different Asian nations to discuss and initiate ideas to protect the living environment.
The event is being jointly organised by the Hemispheres Foundation and the Viet Nam Environment Administration.
The delegates, aged between 11 and 21, have from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, and Singapore, as well as Oman and Viet Nam to take part in the four-day event that will focus on energy efficiency and waste management. There will be field trips in Ha Noi and to the neighbouring provinces of Bac Ninh and Hai Duong.
"These young environmentalists will be a great source of inspiration for other youth in the region to learn more about the environment impact and assume a more active role in their actions for Earth," said Hemisphere Foundation President Ann Phua.
A GYS Summer will be hosted in HCM City this August. — VNS
