Get Green

GetGreen VN - Sustainable Living and Working in Vietnam

GetGreen VN logo

The overall objectives are to:

  • Contribute to increasing the share of sustainable consumption by Vietnamese consumers in general.
  • Increase capacity of consumer organisations and government in convincing and supporting consumers in making the choice for more sustainable consumption behaviour.
  • This will be realised by a number of concerted actions on targeted consumer groups in living and working contexts.

 

The specific objectives of the action are to:

  • Identify and implement the opportunities of shifting consumption choices of 10 selected test groups of households and office workforces towards more sustainable behaviour.
  • Replicate the tested approaches for transition towards more sustainable consumption to a large group of household consumers and office workers in Vietnam divided in 50 'GetGreen VN' Groups - meaning well over 1000 Vietnamese consumers will be change agents for the transition towards sustainable consumption.
  • Link green supply side to emerging sustainable consumption patterns
  • Involve consumer organisations and other relevant organisations directly in the action to improve their capacity

 

Duration: 4/2012 - 3/2015
