Under the motto "Meeting of humans and nature", the event targets to promote and honor natural heritage sites of Viet Nam, especially those recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The week also aims to create a chance for Vietnamese people, especially the youth, to show their responsibility, patriotism and pride for natural heritage sites, thereby, raising public awareness of the need to preserve biodiversity and prevent the impacts of climate change.

The event also offers an opportunity for localities to exchange their experiences in preserving and upholding the values of natural heritage.

A range of cultural activities will be held during the week, including a photo exhibition entitled "Viet Nam's Natural Heritage". It will introduce the natural beauty, biodiversity value, cultural beauty, scenic spots and daily activities of people living in World Natural Heritage Areas and the National Park Biosphere Reserve.

An exhibition themed "Cultural heritage, tourism and traditional craft villages of Viet Nam" will be also organized, showcasing products of 10 outstanding craft villages including Bat Trang and Chu Dau pottery, Quat Dong embroidery, Dong Ho folk paintings, Van Phuc silk, and Hoi An lanterns.

A cultural exchange program for students will be arranged at the event.

The Green Heritage Culture and Tourism Week was first launched in 2013.
