Celebrated in 1970 for the first time, Earth Day is now a global annual movement to demonstrate our love and care to the environment. As the official member of the Earth Day Network, Keep Vietnam Clean and Green (Việt Nam Sạch Và Xanh) successfully hosted last year in 5 big cities from Hanoi to Phu Quoc, which massively attracted 1,500 participants (a growth of 250% compared to ourselves in 2016) and spread the message to more than 150,000 people. Leveraging that success, this year -2018, AmCham Vietnam proudly co-operates with Viet Nam Sach Va Xanh in this meaningful activity series to create positive impact on the community, spreading green lifestyle to everyone.
