WCD: Hanoi

1As Vietnam’s economy booms, motorised transport continues to grow, as does the poor air quality in cities. Facing this choking evolution, the Green Transport campaign was born to promote daily use of sustainable transportation in Hanoi. It started with a Green Transport Day in May 2008 which had nearly 3,600 participants. Building on this success, Green Transport Week was created. This year’s theme “Get to work differently” encouraged employees to cycle, walk or take the bus to work. Some friendly competition among workplaces pushed offices to cut their CO2 emissions. The campaign will continue until green transport becomes a sustainable pattern in the city.
