Let The River Breathe

👉 Contest rules here:

Water is a precious resource, especially for those living along rivers. As the first participant of the poster design contest “Let the river breathe”, Truong Kim Phuc revealed that the beautiful of the Tien River will always be his fondest childhood memory. However, in the current state of environmental pollution, we are facing the risk of losing valuable freshwater resources unless we manage the waste discharged into the river.

He shares: “Let the river “breathe” means giving ourselves and the future generations a better chance to “breathe”. It is a profound call to action with the aim of protecting the environment and freshwater resources from now on. 

We hope that the contest’s message will spread widely and contribute to changing people’s awareness of the environment and water resources preservation. Don’t hesitate to join us to help make rivers cleaner.

Let’s create and send your meaningful messages to our contest “Let the river breathe” of the project “Zero Waste to Mekong River: Pilot Circular Economy model for Floating markets in Can Tho”!


The project is funded by Dow Chemical Vietnam Co., Ltd (Dow Vietnam) and implemented by the Centre for Supporting Green Development (GreenHub), the Research Center for Resources and Rural Development (RECERD), the companionship of the People’s Committee and the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Can Tho City.
