This past weekend in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City hosted only its second “Earthday Vietnam” event, following the country's first-ever event last year. The theme for this year’s event was “More Exercises, More Eco-Friendly,” which was meant to inspire the public to be more motivated and to pick up wholesome hobbies. The day featured activities like the “Green Run,” where runners dodged obstacles made from recycled materials like old tires, and the “Crazy Dance,” a flash mob featuring thousands of participants.

A press release and photos of the event are available here.
