ASEF Green Action aims to raise awareness on the harmful effects of plastic on the environment. The initiative includes a variety of activities, such as public launches, bag exchanges and workshops, coordinated by selected 18th ASEF University (AU18) participants. During bag exchanges, passers-by are invited to swap their plastic bag for a sustainable one and encouraged to use the latter instead in the future. The collected materials will be creatively reused to promote further green awareness.
