Danish ambassador to Vietnam promotes 2014 Earth Hour campaign

Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, Miss Vietnam 2008 contestant Nguyen Thuy Van, and singer Bao Tram will be representing the Earth Hour 2014.

The event will take place at the Cach Mang Thang Tam Square from 8:30-9:30 p.m. on March 29. Citizens are encouraged to turn off all lights and appliances during the hour. The aim of this event is to highlight energy conservation and climate-change issues.

The campaign will include activities such as Green Destinations, Green Schools, a painting contest and a bicycle parade.

Vietnam’s first participation for this event was in 2009. The country saved 401,000 kWh of electricity during the campaign in 2013.

Earth Hour is a global event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. It takes place annually on the last Saturday of March.
