“No littering in the park and put trashes in right places”

In the beginning of the school year 2016-2017, Faculty of Environment and Labour Safety from Ton Duc Thang University held a meaningful campaign which is an environmental communication activity between the students of the faculty and twenty American students from Lewis & Clark College (Oregon, the United States).


In the afternoon of September 20th 2016, students of the faculty and American students from Lewis & Clark College had an activity to promote environmental protection in Ho Chi Minh city and improve local people awareness about littering. The location of the activity was at September 23th Park in District 7.


The main scope of the activity is to encourage citizens and foreigners around the park to put trashes into the right places like trash bins or baskets. The students went around the park to talk with local people and those who pass through the park about the issue and tried to improve the awareness of people. The students also helped cleaning up the park while they were walking around it.
