13. 11. 2017 Coastal resources management

These 150 trainers will implement their newfound knowledge in their work, passing on essential knowledge to hundreds of students

These activities took place within the framework of the “Raising Awareness of Marine Conservation and Access to Information Technology for Adolescents in Need of Improvement in Coastal Living,” or the “Enabling Boat” campaign jointly implemented by the Center for Marinelife Conservation and Community Development (MCD), the Vietnet Information Technology and Communication Centre (Vietnet-ICT), with technical support and sponsorship from Microsoft.

The trainings provided participants with practical knowledge on basic Information Technology (IT) and computer science—including Office 365, online safety, social networks, and coding with Kodu—as well as marine conservation and climate change adaptation.

Most importantly, trainers exchanged innovative teaching methods based on IT and computer science. These trainers will later implement initiatives to provide opportunities for adolescents, especially those from difficult coastal families, to access IT and marine environmental knowledge, not only in the project activities, but also in local programmes.

The “Enabling Boat” project was launched in Quang Ninh at the beginning of 2017, with the aim of raising awareness and building capacity on ICT, computer science, and knowledge related to climate change adaptation and environmental protection for adolescents and communities in difficult coastal areas.

Specifically, the project is expected to support 200 children from the resettled fishing villages and others who live in remote coastal areas without good access to learning facilities. It enables children to have the capacity to seek, and promote opportunities for better lives.

Students from the northern port city of Haiphong, and Quang Ninh’s Hung Thang, Tuan Chau, and Ha Khanh wards have been selected to participate in “Enabling Boat” trainings. The classes took place in schools, cultural houses of the villages or sometimes consisted of simple computer-based tutorials and basic IT classes for those who never used computers before.

All activities are carried out with the help of local authorities, educational management organisations, and local youth.
