The event was organised by the Vietnam Youth Federation Central Committee, the Vietnam National Volunteer Centre, the VTV24 news centre of the Vietnam Television, and the US Embassy in the country.

In the 28 coastal provinces and cities nationwide, the campaign from June through August attracted the participation of almost 99,400 young people to cleanup activities. They collected nearly 1,300 tonnes of waste and also successfully turn cleanup efforts into weekly activities at 367 areas.

Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Youth Federation Central Committee Nguyen Kim Quy said the campaign won high evaluation from the public. Organisations and businesses’ support in distributing “Let’s clean up the ocean” posters also greatly helped with the protection of marine environment in the country.

On this occasion, the Secretariat of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee presented certificates of merit to the union’s committees in Ben Tre, Quang Binh, Binh Dinh and Phu Yen provinces, and of the Border Guard High Command in recognition of their outstanding achievements in the campaign implementation.

Also on October 12, organisers presented prizes of a poster design and initiative contest on reducing daily waste pollution. The contest received 40 initiatives and 120 posters sent by young people nationwide.
