Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, who is also an ambassador of the campaign, said he hopes young people will act more responsibly to protect the earth, starting with changes in their own daily lives.

Within the programme, participants took part in activities to promote the drive, including cycling around Hanoi’s streets and organising knowledge contests on saving energy.

Similar activities were also held at the Da Nang College of Economics under the University of Da Nang on March 22.

On March 6, the Ministry of Industry and Trade officially launched the Earth Hour campaign, aiming to raise public awareness of saving electricity and alleviating climate change threats. 

Hanoi is planning a range of activities to respond to the campaign. As part of its efforts, decorative lighting and neon advertising boards will be turned off from 8:30-9:30pm on March 29 in Hanoi’s landmark venues such as Ngoc Son temple, Ly Thai To flower garden, Hanoi Opera House and the head offices of the municipal government and People’s Council.
