"Water is life: life of a human being, life of a country, life of our planet. In Vietnam, thousands are struggling to have access to clean water every day especially nowadays when the effects of climate change are more and more strongly felt and we have to face increasing challenges to counteract those effects. We are convinced that more efforts are needed to spread awareness in Vietnam and abroad of the grave effects of climate change and of water security.Therefore the Embassies of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia in cooperation with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists would like to invite interested students to participate in a photo contest. If you believe that a photograph can say more than a thousand words, participate now and show the world that climate change is a reality in our everyday life and it is our responsibility to shape our future.", the Organisers said.

Hungarian Ambassador to Vietnam Ory Csaba said it is important to enhance public awareness of water security and climate change in Vietnam as well as around the world.
