Since social responsibility is part of our business mission and, of course, my personal principles, I purposely took part last weekend in a youth event organized by OYG. This is the name of a group of dynamic young Cambodian people who strive to contribute to society. (For more information about this group, please visit www.oygcambodia.org)
It’s one thing to visit Sihanukville for fun. But it’s another great experience to live it for a societal purpose: environment protection. This sea city attracts quite a number of local and foreign tourists, relatively to Siem Reap. However, OYG’s concern is that most of us are not aware of the impact caused by irresponsible acts like water, noise, soil and air pollution. My team of 25 people, out of total 130 participants, dealt with water pollution. To put our discussion and findings into practice, we launched a group campaign at O’chheu Teal Beach by collecting trash we found ashore. Sounds a bit silly and simple, right? Yet, we believe that ‘this little thing will make a big difference’ to our natural heritage. The same holds true to our attitude in life!
