The mural, 112 meters long and 1.5 meters tall, broke the previous record for the longest painting in Vietnam. The first record was set in Nha Trang with a 100-meter long, 1.4-meter high mural.

The new painting highlights the problems of global warming, air pollution, and clear-cut logging; as well as environmental solutions for a greener future.

More than 400 volunteers from 20 Go Green clubs at universities in Hanoi took part in painting the project. In addition to illustrating environmental problems, they were encouraged to express their hopes for a better, more beautiful future in the images they created.

The Record Environment Painting Festival was organized by Toyota Motorbike Vietnam to raise awareness amongst youth about protecting the country’s environment.

The event also featured several games and music performances, which encouraged young people to become environmental advocates.
