This is an event to recognize the contribution of the university in the formation and development of a “green” educational environment with fresh and airy learning atmosphere, which is a very special case in the middle of Ho Chi Minh City as well as in the whole Vietnam.
At TDTU, the total green area is about 77.75% of public space and the learning areas are overlooking the greenery, surrounded by an array of grass. Moreover, a natural canal divides the double play sports complex and campus area. There are also the biological experimental garden and vegetable garden nurtured by the students. Especially, the hygiene awareness of leaders, staffs and students of TDTU have created a natural and green space to help students to relieve stress, enjoy and achieve greater efficiency in research and learning.
With the purpose of creating favorable conditions for students to comprehensively develop in the best environment, and continuously improving the education quality with the system of modern facilities and amenities, at TDTU the spiritual life for students is much taken care by creating a safe and healthy learning environment.
The event of receiving the certification “Campus Environmentally Friendly School” from Vietnam Federation of UNESCO Associations is the practical demonstration of the recognition for the efforts of TDTU staffs and students during the past years.
