When and Where

Whether you live near the coast or thousands of miles inland, we are all connected to the ocean. It moderates our climate, provides the air we breathe, and much of the food we eat. All activities are to take place at the coastal town: Time: 6:00 a.m. – 05:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 19, 2013 Venue: Long Dien, Ba Ria – Vung Tau. (map included)

What’s new?

Our 2014 Community Day will include coastal clean-up, tree planting, and community engagement. . Coastal Clean-up Team: The Ocean absorbs much of the pollution we generate. And trash that falls from our hands is one of the most pervasive pollution problems facing our world’s ocean. But it doesn’t have to be that way … Keeping our ocean free from trash is one of the easiest things we can do to help protect it. . Tree Planting Team: Trees slow down soil erosion, protect water, and control winds. A coastal ‘green belt’ is also necessary to reduce sea rising due to climate change. Together we save the environment by planting more trees! . Community Engagement Team: Local women, children, and men stay close to this initiative. What we can improve our actions and sustainable impact by engaging them in the whole picture about how to be responsible and committed to sheltering the sea and trees. The campaign spirit does not last within the one-day event. It’s the life-long story which we are writing it. Let’s join AmCham companies and almost 700 volunteers, and the global movement that is giving back to our ocean and local people, by spending your day to make it real!
