Attending the program, the young participants experienced a series of knowledge transmission spaces with the main contents including:

  • The "Cohesive" space and open discussion sessions were held around issues of green and sustainable living;

During the presentation of ideas and critiques, Mr. Ho Viet Hai and Ms. Nguyen Da Quyen - Judge of the creative competition proposed solutions to reduce harmful effects on the environment, raised sharp questions or contributed ideas with practical meaning. Ms. Nguyen Da Quyen shared: “What you are missing is turning ideas into actions. Having an idea is easy, but turning an idea into action and concrete projects is not so simple. Today you meet wonderful friends, you can turn your idea around or make your idea better, more complete and then turn it into concrete action. If you only stop at an idea contest, presenting Youthspeak's ideas this year, you will still have the same idea next year when you sit down again, but society will have nothing new, so what I want is for you to know how to share seeds like this idea to people, to the community.”

Within the framework of the event, young people were also registered to participate in the Workshop series with 4 different topics:

  • The Real Well-being
  • Thinking Out-of-the-box
  • Science of Habit Formation
  • Critical Thinking
