As part of the EU Climate Diplomacy Week 2019, the event will be held from 8am to 11.30am, and from 2pm until 5.30pm on Saturday and Sunday (October 12 and 13). Volunteers over 16 years old are welcome to join the event.

Following its “green” theme, the organisers have also encouraged participants ride their bikes to the venue with the offer of prizes for those who do.

Participants will be offered a free vegan lunch.

Registration can be found at https://forms.gle/jbunvSVnDFimRfNR9. For more information, contact KHC by emailing info@keephanoiclean.org, or call James (English) 0949886880, Phuong (Vietnamese) 0936688727.

KHC was founded in May 2016 by James Joseph Kendall — a long-term American resident of Hanoi who was concerned about the levels of trash in and around his neighbourhood. The ultimate goal of KHC is to help Hanoi become a “green gem city” for sustainable living, and then to replicate this success across the country.
