Participants were offered a playground to better comprehend climate-change adaptation and mitigation, and to raise awareness within their communities in creative ways.

More than 500 entries which conveyed original ideas and in-depth content were sent from the three province’s secondary school students to the organisers over three months.

Truong Nguyen Y Nhu and Tran Thanh Thuy, two seventh-graders at Nguyen Binh Khiem School in Hoi An city of Quang Nam province, received the special prize for a five-minute documentary named "Waking Sleeping Land after the Disaster”.

The film depicts the iconic Thu Bon river, the city’s popular tourism spot, before it was abandoned after the flood in 2000.

To revive the river’s beauty and help local people earn sustainable livelihoods, the two students made recommendations to use its potential and land resources to develop tourism activities such as tourist boat visits to Hoi An during the flood season.

Tran Quang Hoai, general director of the VNDMA entries, praised the entries for their creative expressions that touched upon contemporary issues and their calls for people to come up with solutions to improve the environment.
