Edward Boydell from Hanoi Vietnam just sent in these great photos from the 2010 Vietnam Youth & Sustainable Development Summit that is happening this week in Cuc Phuong National Park in the Ninh Binh Province.   These photos show the activities of 70 participants, from more than 40 environmental clubs and organizations around Vietnam, who have come together to share stories and learn from one another how to take action on climate change and move towards a more sustainable world. 

Boydell, who is a volunteer at the conference and works for an environmental education program in Vietnam called Live and Learn, sent me an email today saying, “The attendees are very energized.  They are committed to practical action, and are really taking to heart the theme of the summit 'Tomorrow Starts Today.' In the coming days of the summit, participants will be preparing their action plan for the 10-10-10 work party as a way to show, in a unified voice, they are getting to work on climate solutions!”

Vietnam currently has 18 events planned across the country and that number is growing literally every day.  The events planned are everything from a big bike ride in Hanoi to clean up’s on the coats to education workshops on the importance of using reusable bags.  Check out the events in Vietnam going on here:
