Gathering people's strength in environmental protection

(BGO) - Identifying people as the main stakeholders in environmental protection, in recent years, the Fatherland Front Committee of Bac Giang province has built a number of self-managed residential area models in environmental protection and encouraged the replication of these models. This approach has proven effective, contributing to reducing waste hotspots and keeping the landscape and environment bright, green, clean and beautiful.

Self-management to keep villages clean

Currently, in Dai Giap village, the landscape and environment are quite clean and beautiful. Concrete roads stretch, with a variety of colorful flowers grown along their two sides to beautify the countryside here. In the evening, the electric lights illuminate the village roads.

People in Tan Son 1 village, Tan Dinh commune (Lang Giang district) actively protect the environment.

Giap Van In, Chairman of the communal Fatherland Front Committee, said that the result was attained as in 2018, Dai Giap village established and consolidated three self-managed environmental protection teams. They are responsible for encouraging people to engage in environmental protection.

In order to change the habit of throwing garbage in public places, the self-managed teams in Dai Giap village have diversified forms of popularization to raise people’s awareness of environmental protection. 

The contents of building self-managed environmental protection residential areas have been included in meetings with people as well as activities of associations and unions in order to encourage youth union members, association members and people of all strata to actively implement the movement.

The teams have focused on explaining to the people the significance of maintaining a clean environment; meeting, exchanging with and directly guiding households to sort their rubbish at home. They have maintained the weekly "Green Sunday" and persuaded people to put garbage in the right place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to transport it for disposal, thus limiting waste pile-up.

Besides Dai Giap village, many villages in Dai Lam commune have established and maintained the operation of self-managed environmental protection teams.

In 2013, Vang village, Bich Son commune (Viet Yen district) established a self-managed environmental protection team. It has promoted popularization on environmental sanitation to the people and pointed out the causes of pollution for the people to discuss solutions. 

Villagers have strictly enforced payment of garbage treatment services; reminded each other to clean the village roads and alleys, collect rubbish, put it in the right place in fixed times, and not to dispose garbage arbitrarily.

Promoting the role of the people

The self-managed environmental protection team of Nghia Hung commune (Lang Giang district) collects waste.

Trinh Huu Ban, Vice Chairman of the provincial Fatherland Front Committee, said that “The province has determined environmental protection as an important political task. Over the past years, implementing the instruction of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee and the coordination programme between the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee and its member organizations, the provincial Fatherland Front Committee has concretized the programme’s contents into criteria, focusing on building bright - green - clean - beautiful residential areas, with the core task of consolidating and establishing self-managed environmental protection teams. The provincial Fatherland Front Committee has developed a number of models in Luong Tai village of Tien Son commune and Dai Giap village of Dai Lam commune. At the same time, it has directed the Fatherland Front Committee of each district and city to develop a self-managed environmental protection model, and then encourage the expansion."

By doing so, the province has to date formed over 2,500 self-managed environmental protection teams, typically those in Lien Tan village, Bo Ha commune (Yen The district); Luong Tai village, Tien Son commune (Viet Yen district); and Dai Giap village, Dai Lam commune ...

The establishment of self-managed environmental protection models is a creative way to gather the strength of the community and stimulate the sense of self-awareness of people in environmental protection, contributing to the effective implementation of the campaign "All people unite to build new-style rural and civilized urban areas”.

In the coming time, the provincial Fatherland Front Committee will continue directing the Fatherland Front Committee of districts and city to inspect, consolidate and improve the quality of activities of the self-managed environmental protection teams in communes, wards and townships.

It will review and encourage replication of such self-managed models in localities, striving to have an effective model in each village. The provincial Fatherland Front Committee will consider this one of the criteria to assess the units’ emulation.
