This is the first art-programme organised in Hanoi with the aim of raising money to fund forest restoration and support fire-fighting forces after several wildfires in the north-central provinces of Ha Tinh and Nghe An.

The programme has raised VND5.774 trillion from the auctioning of more than 100 unique works of art and from sponsors. All proceeds will be donated to the fund "Join hands to plant Vietnam forest".

Speaking at the event, Most Venerable Thich Duc Thien, Vice President and Secretary General of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha said that scientists have affirmed that the great advances of science technology cannot prevent the rapid progress of climate change, so only human consciousness can decide the protection of the environment, and the response to climate change.

The Most Venerable also called on everyone to protect, preserve, and bring back the natural beauty of Mother Earth, and to protect the beloved planet.
