QUẢNG NINH — Nearly 300 young people took part in a campaign to clean rubbish along more than 2.5km of seashore in Hạ Long City on Sunday.
The young people are from the Quảng Ninh Border Guards and youth unions in the city.
The campaign was held in response to the Quảng Ninh-Hạ Long Tourism Week 2019.
About three tonnes of trash was collected and brought to proper areas for disposal.
In a similar approach, the Sóc Trăng Border Guards, in co-ordination with the Vĩnh Châu Town authorities, launched a campaign to clear the seas on Saturday.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, colonel Lê Văn Anh, deputy political commissar of the provincial Border Guards, called for local young people and students to take part in the campaign with practical actions including collecting rubbish, disseminating the importance of the seas, and encouraging residents and tourists not to throw rubbish away.
The volunteers will also spread information on laws of the seas and islands, and the Government’s decrees on punishing violations related to environmental protection.
After the launch ceremony, nearly 200 volunteers collected rubbish along two kilometres of the Vĩnh Châu Sea. — VNS
