“One of the most pressing problems we are facing today is climate change. Both of our countries, Vietnam and the Netherlands, are countries vulnerable to climate change. Our Holland has a quarter of the country located below the sea level, and your Vietnam, with a long coastline, suffers regularly from storms and floods. We, both countries, and the students here, have and will continue to cooperate to fight against climate change as well as for environmental protection.” – Mr. Christoph Prommersberger, Vice Ambassador of the Netherlands in Vietnam shared in the award ceremony for the painting competition “Vietnamese youth’s creativity for climate change adaptation”.

Next, Mrs Tran Thuy Duong and Mr Christoph both made speeches. Mrs Duong shared: “In recent years, the environment has been a difficult issue that have posed a great many challenges for humanity; to mitigate the problems and improve the alarming situation of the nature, first we need to raise awareness about the values of the environment, as well as the ability and the mindfulness to protect the environment of each student. And I believe the earnest paintings from them have completed that mission. Each of your painting is an invaluable contribution to the spread of meaningful messages about the environmental protection service”.
