Five Myanmar university students have been chosen to represent the country at a regional youth meeting on the environment, the Environmental Conservation Department said.
The Environmental Forum of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations plus three (China, Japan, and South Korea) will be held on Thailand’s Phuket island later this year.
“This forum aims to raise awareness among students who could be the future leaders of the country,” the official said. “We want youths to be interested and active in environmental conservation.”
The forum has invited youth participants from all 10 ASEAN members to share their experiences and best practices in cleaning the ocean, which is the main theme of the conference.
