Speakers sharing knowledge and experiences with students
Not only are our speakers successful in their fields, but the speakers are also active pioneers in environmental protection activities and have many green living experiences. With their enthusiasm and sincerity, the speakers delivered a lot of useful knowledge about the environment as well as sharing solutions that students could apply in their daily activities, such as: reduce waste and plastic, increasing reuse. Most importantly, students can rely on knowledge and solutions being shared from speakers to build their own green lifestyle and become the inspiration for the community to go green.
Students and speakers actively exchange their ideas about green living solutions.
In addition to the passion of the speakers, VAS students also contributed lots of exciting atmosphere to VAS TALKS 2019. At each session, the students actively absorbed speakers’ sharing and they made a deep impression to the speakers with critical feedback and intelligent initiatives as well. Helly Tống – Founder of The Yên Concept, Co-Founder Lại Đây Refill Station, shared on her social page after joining with VAS TALKS 2019: “I am enthusiastic about talking to the students because of the clarity in their way of thinking about the matters. They know clearly about the cause and solve problems drastically. That makes me trust a lot in the next generation. Once, adults give children opportunities, faith, and the chance for them to talk and share, with their inherent intelligence and curiosity, they will definitely be a sprout of viogrous vitality.
VAS students confidently make questions, share point of views and ideas.
Thank all the speakers for coming to interact and make a good moments with VAS students.
The session on September 27 at Phan Xich Long campus has officially closed the VAS TALKS 2019 with lots of inspiration and solutions for all VAS community to strive to become the VAS Greeneration. See you in next VAS TALKS season!
