SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019 (PV19): Full Bottle, Fewer Bottles aims to empower the community living on the banks of the Red River, Hanoi through education of plastic pollution.
8 - 21 July 2019
Through a lively 2-week program to equip the local children residing on the bank of Red River with practical tools to solve problems in their community, SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019 nurtures a network of proactive servant leaders in an interconnected Southeast Asia.
Plastic pollution is one of the problems any Southeast Asian country is facing. The most vulnerable to pollution, sadly, are usually the ones who have to suffer the most. The residents from ‘Bai Giua’ (literal meaning: Middle Land, or the strip of land in the middle of the river), Red River, Hanoi, living just 3 km away from downtown Hanoi, live their whole life next to mismanaged solid waste dumps, facing extreme pollution on a daily basis.
With that in mind, through the support of Project S-house, an agent that has been working in this community for a decade now, we aim to instil in all stakeholders a sense of responsibility to their surrounding environment through the use of plastic pollution education.
