At a press briefing in Hanoi on May 22, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee said there will be an exchange between young people from Vietnam and Laos at the ceremony, as well as a special art performance to mark Vietnam-Laos Friendship Year in 2012.
A photography contest on the youth joining hands to protect the environment will also be launched.
The targets of the campaign are to have the young people in each province or city build at least 10 rural cultural houses; each district will build at least 1km of rural roads and every village will keep their roads clean and beautiful.
The youth will also take part in activities to ensure traffic safety, promote environmental protection, prevent natural disasters and epidemics, and support communal health care and blood donation campaigns, along with other international volunteer activities.
