The joining students stood hand in hand firmly on the April 2 Square to convey the meaning of Vietnam’s territory.

Authorities of Nha Trang and Khanh Hoa Province, home to the city, organized the making of the living map.

After creating the human map, the students joined thousands of volunteers, locals and tourists in taking garbage off the beach.
