LoveHanoi Conference 2018
Situated between two rivers, with over 30,000 trees lining the streets, and more than 30 lakes dotting the city, Hanoi has a natural beauty rarely found in developing Asian cities. Yet, the rapid urbanization over recent decades presents a great burden on the environment. The small particle count (PM2.5) is “one of the highest in Southeast Asia” according to the OECD. Already, Hanoi is at the 10 million population mark, said the National Assembly in a recent report, almost 30 years ahead of schedule.
We love Hanoi, so how can we take action today to better the environment for tomorrow’s generation? That will be the question we will wrestle with at the upcoming Love Hanoi Conference on environment on Saturday November 24 in the afternoon. HIF CityPartners is organizing this conference for all HIFers, partner organizations, local churches, and friends to participate in. We have recruited several presenters to help us understand the opportunities and challenges in Hanoi. We are still looking for people interested in pitching ideas, products and initiatives in 5 minutes presentations.
