WUSC joined 156 countries and more than 13 million volunteers globally for World Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 15th to raise awareness on the importance of keeping our communities clean and reducing the use of plastic. WUSC Vietnam joined the cleanup in partnership with Keep Hanoi Clean at Ho Ba Mau Lake, Hanoi. We’re committed to including more environmentally responsible practices and activities in everything we do because we recognize the impact of pollution in Vietnam. We recently established the WUSC Green Committee to focus on reducing our use of single-use plastic and inspire our partners to do the same.
Thank you Olivia Dymek, volunteer with SRD and WUSC Vietnam’s Green Committee leader, for taking the initiative to lead this cleanup location on behalf of WUSC Vietnam. The event was a success, attracting a wide range of participants from local NGOs, the Women’s Union, the Youth’s Union, private sector, youth, children, international organizations, the Canadian Embassy, and even a few local citizens in the neighborhood joined in.
