HCM CITY — Four individuals and 38 organisations received the 2016 Environmental Awards from the HCM City Department of Natural Resources and Environment on Wednesday for their outstanding contributions to environmental protection.

Nguyễn Văn Thái, vice president of Phạm Ngọc Thạch Elementary School; Phạm Thị Thanh Nhàn, a teacher at Lê Đình Chinh Elementary School; Lê Thị Vân Hùng, a resident of District 6; and Venerable Thích Huệ Công, head of Long Hòa Pagoda in District 8, were the four individuals to be honoured.

The 38 organisations included 30-4 Hospital in District 5 for its outstanding medical waste disposal systems and green spaces.

Quan Âm Monastery, Sơn Ca 10 Kindergarten, and Hồ Văn Huê Secondary School’s contributions were also significant.

While the monastery often organised talks on the importance of saving the environment, the two schools encouraged their students to participate in meaningful activities like planting trees.

According to Lê Văn Khoa, vice chairman of the city People’s Committee, the biennial award seeks to honour efforts to safeguard the environment and raise public awareness of environmental protection. — VNS
