Youth-Led Adaptation for Climate Change Challenges in Vietnam: Social Action, Inter-Generational and Inter-Cultural Learning
A project looking to develop creative, youth-led perspectives and action on climate challenges in Vietnam.
This research team aims to support young people, working together in partnership, to identify imaginative ways to mitigate climate change challenges in the Red River basin, where hydrological extremes, landslides and soil erosion in the upper basin are increasingly having impacts whilst relative sea-level rises in the delta region are affecting the frequency and magnitude of flooding. Youth-led work will explore how local, traditional and indigenous knowledges can develop understandings and strengthen local and societal resilience, incorporating peer-to-peer, intergenerational and cross-/inter-cultural forms of collaborative learning. Drawing upon a decolonised, participatory action research approach, the project is seeking to generate innovative forms of knowledge exchange rooted in these diverse ways of knowing, through the creation of culturally-specific forms of affective and aesthetic expression.
