Mr. Nguyen Thanh Dung, an expert and coordinator of the Siam City Cement Public Company Limited (Vietnam) started the seminar with a conversation with students about Green building, sustainable development in construction (construction techniques of the future, smart cities – the future trend in construction, traffic, and energy). The concept of Green building has been in Vietnam for 10 years, but there are very few of such buildings because building operations, not the construction costs, is the extremely difficult part. Being affected directly by green buildings, residents will be the ones who may perceive the building life cycle. As a result, it is today’s generation of youths who will bring into reality our dreams of green buildings.

Beyond green buildings, sustainability in building developments is about the innovative ideas that have practical application and economic efficiency, and about Eco-cycle business concept which applies person-centered theory and tends towards a sustainable society for the future. These will be evaluative standards for the buildings in Vietnam so that we can catch up and integrate with the world.

After this seminar, Dr. Nguyen Khac Cuong affirmed the desire of maintain and develop the stable and efficient partnership between the Faculty of Civil Construction of VLU and business enterprises expressed by connecting activities like carrying out workshops, having a field trip to construction sites, or participating in contests. Entrepreneurship seminars are work-based learning experiences for students to approach the optimum industrial solutions that are being used and to enable and embed their employability thinking; and entrepreneurship competitions are the “tests” for students to put their knowledge into action, which is the best way to shorten the distance between theory and practice.
