The winners, Nguyen Trong Linh (Hanoi), Ngo Hoang Minh Quyen (Ho Chi Minh City), Nguyen Thi Nhu Quynh (Hanoi), Huynh Phuoc Thao (Hau Giang) and Tran Duc Quang (Da Nang city), received bamboo green bicycles produced in Vietnam.

 

Some 1,000 entries were submitted to the organising board in response to multiple-choice questionnaires and essay questions on a number of issues such as climate change impacts on Vietnam, educating children on the importance of conserving natural resources and reducing greenhouse effects and carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles.

 

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Ph.D Franz Jessen, Head of the EU Delegation in Vietnam, voiced his delight at the involvement of young people in the competition. He said that it demonstrates Vietnam’s awareness and concern over climate change issues which are troubling countries nationwide.

 

The EU and its member states are working to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40% before 2030, he added.

 

The 2015 climate change competition is part of joint activities organised by the EU Delegation and embassies of its member states to celebrate European Climate Diplomacy Day (June 17).

 

It aims to raise public awareness on climate change and its influence on the environment while promoting the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference held in Paris at the end of this year as well as joint activities to counter the pressing issue.
