NDO – More than one thousand people participated in the Vietnam Clean Air Days 2018 in Hanoi from December 22-23.

Co-organised by the Green Innovation and Development Centre (GreenID) and the Live & Learn Environmental Education Centre (Live&Learn), the event, with the message "Clean air - Green gift - Healthy family", is expected to contribute to increasing public awareness on the current situation, causes and impacts of air pollution to public health, and promote changes in attitudes and actions in improving air quality.

Participants had the chance to receive information, visit exhibitions and join painting activities on the topic of air pollution.

The event opened activities under the "Vietnam Clean Air" campaign organised annually by GreenID and Live & Learn. The campaign aims to contribute to the voice of the community in the process of building, improving and enforcing clean air policies in Vietnam.

According to Nguyen Thi Hang, manager of GreenID’s Air and Water Programme, in recent years, GreenID has actively implemented many initiatives to contribute to the effort to solve air pollution through offering up-to-date information on the status and solutions at the individual, community and policy levels. Continuing the results, in the next phase, GreenID will create a deeper, stronger interaction with the public in order to promote individual action to improve and preserve clean air for everyone's health.
