Duc, who plays for national premier V 1 League Song Lam Nghe An, will be the ambassador for the clean-up programme in coastal-central Vietnam. He will encourage local communities to keep their white sand beaches pristine and garbage free.
The campaign will include tree planting and building much-needed facilities at the beaches to serve local people and tourists during the summer.
He will be at the official event in September, according to the event’s organisers.
The beach clean-up programme, which is an initiative of Carlsberg Vietnam, is expected to encourage and support the sustainable development of central Vietnam while improving the beach for local communities.
