“Scaling up and mainstreaming innovative approaches on ecological movement into activities of universities – 2020”
Sponsor agency: Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung
Center for Development of Community Initiative and Environment (C&E)
Timeframe: September, 2020
It is essential to strengthen the capacity for a more ecological and participatory lifestyle among young people and create foundations and pathways to develop ecological lifestyle education in Vietnam as well as in the region. Center for Development of Community Initiative and Environment (C&E) is a Vietnamese NGO working with the community and grass-roots. C&E has developed a national network of youth groups and grass-root organizations that work in the field of sustainable development and environmental protection. C&E has rich experience organizing capacity building for youth, particularly through ecological lifestyle and Youth Change Vietnam.
Under 02 projects: “Partnership to support and promote informal and non-formal education for advocating ecological lifestyle and climate change adaptation and mitigation in Vietnam Universities – 2015-2017” and “Scaling up and mainstreaming innovative approaches on ecological movement into activities of universities 2018 – 2020” supported by RLS with the aims to create an effective Eco-network engaging individuals, trainers, universities and organizations into acting towards eco-lifestyle and sustainability education and to promote the idea and practice of ecological lifestyle education among universities and youth networks in Vietnam. Especially, based on the result from survey data, regional TOT, advocacy workshop,….C&E will be responsible for facilitating the review and integration process of these project and providing case studies from its work with the community and the youth in Vietnam. They will also provide linkages with other Vietnamese NGOs and international organizations working in this field to the programs. The C&E will involve students with not only in-class teaching but also extra-curricular activities, such as field classes to raise environmental awareness and embed a sustainable culture.
To deepen the project’s impact, in the year 2020, C&E will work with experts for, co-coaching TOT training and practice of ecological lifestyle education among universities and youth networks in Vietnam. C&E wants to adapt the idea of socio-ecological transformation into its activities philosophy.
The overall expected outcome of Scaling up and mainstreaming innovative approaches on ecological movement into activities of universities – the year 2020 is supposed to align with RLS’s orientation towards socio-ecological transformation (SET).
In terms of operative principle, the project will utilize SET as the approach to development. Given the current overemphasis on economic aspect and limited attention to ecology and social domains, we deem that SET will be more effective in promoting community development and helping to tackle ecological and social issues. The activities are supposed to draw target participants and the public’s attention to contemporary environmental challenges and social challenges in conjunction with economic growth to motivate them to work out viable solutions. Therefore, the project is expected to help accelerate just transition.
Furthermore, educational methods learnt through C&E’s experience with RLS during COP24 will be applied to the operation of the project. Informal and non-formal will be the focal approaches when learner-centered activities are designed to provide experiential learning. Multi-perspective is also encouraged so that participants will be able to reflect on their professional roles from different positions to first, help them to understand others’ views and then to encourage them to address challenges in more creative and effective ways. Besides knowledge, the project will also focus on developing target participants’ skills and attitudes so that they will have the necessary tools for their future cause.
Finally, through education, the project aims to disseminate SET in the context of Vietnam. Given that SET is a relatively new concept in Vietnam, the project aims to first introduce it through formal talks and workshops and then invite participants to apply it in their personal and professional.
Generally, the project aims to:
- Promote ecological lifestyle and movement among the young Vietnamese and integration of socio-ecological issues/transformation into university activities through education; and
- Raise public awareness of youth ecological movement in Vietnam.
