Can Tho University

To continue and expand upon the success of Phase 1, Phase 2 of the project intends to generate further inclusive impacts that foster community resilience to climate change, through a variety of collaborative schemes and actions.

The British Council in Viet Nam has been working with the Research Institute for Climate Change, Can Tho University, to develop the ‘Youth Community Resilience to Climate Change in the Mekong Delta’ project – also known as Y-CoRe – from 2023 to 2025. Find more information on its Phase 1 activities here. 

Phase 2 action plan:

Phase 2 of Y-CoRe expands the target audience of university lecturers, students, and other communities to maintain and develop the youth network in the Mekong Delta. It includes:

  • Training the Trainers (ToT) for a group of 30 university lecturers and community youth leaders.
  • Cascaded training for students and young people to develop ideas for climate and gender equality action projects, using different approaches (arts, communication, scientific innovation, education, and so on).
  • Provision of seed funding to youth initiatives designed to support those communities affected by climate change and gender inequality.
  • Two showcases and youth dialogues disseminating project outcomes/impacts, linked with UK and Viet Nam national strategies.
  • Integration of the British Council’s training contents into the extra curriculum in Can Tho University and participating universities.
