NDO – The third forum entitled ‘journalists with environment, seas and islands’ was held in Hanoi on June 22, focusing on raising the role of communication in plastic waste prevention.

Themed ‘Plastic waste prvention: the responsibility of management – communication – businesses’, the forum aimed to call for the joint efforts from organisations, enterprises, people and press agencies in the prevention and control of plastic wastes.

Delegates shared their information, policies and experiences to reduce plastic wastes within the environment as a whole and oceans in particular.

Many participants said that in order to make the anti-plastic campaign effective, localities should closely coordinate with press agencies in communicating policies related to the plastic waste prevention.

In addition, the press agencies need to be proactive in widely communicating typical examples and practical initiatives and actions in solving plastic wastes as well as frankly criticise inadequacies and restrictions in the use of plastic products.

According to Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Le Cong Thanh, in the current news trend, environment is a principal topic. Press agencies have significantly contributed to the development of natural resources and environment sector.
