Vietnam Youth to Debate

Vietnam Youth to Debate (Vietnam Y2D) is the youth-led educational programme that aims to enable Vietnamese young people to become better decision makers through localizing the concept of debate as well as educating debate-related attitudes and competencies.

Vietnam Y2D is the initial stage of an emerging educational field to initiate in my home country, starting from my generation. We debate because it is FUN. Creating a safe and  fun environment is essential for learners to use up our nature of human and require transparent, open and collaborative dialogues to CHANGE.

– Hanh Vu, the Founder and Lead Facilitator –
