Within the framework of the program, the Organizing Committee has launched two model groups to propagandize building civilized restaurants, food stalls, and "People's market with reduction of plastic waste". At the same time, ten local fishermen, who exchanged garbage in the activity "Exchanging garbage for gifts", received the gifts.

This is a movement launched by the Standing Committee of the Provincial Youth Union, under the project “Enhancing communities’ capacity in environment protection linked with developing tourism in lagoons” of the Global Environment Fund.

At the end of the ceremony, more than 300 youth union members and young people from Hue City’s Youth Union and Phu Vang District’s Youth Union participated in the cleaning up of the Thuan An beach.

*Phu Vang District’s Youth Union has cooperated with the Youth Unions of agencies and enterprises in the province, and the Youth Union of the Provincial Border Guard to respond to the program. They also gave ten cabinets of medicine to the local fishermen, and ten scholarships to local students with difficult circumstances.
