On Tuesday 350 Vietnam had the great pleasure to present our work and our recent efforts at an event called Green Drinks. Green Drinks is a monthly, informal session, which provides individuals, young NGOs and established organizations in the green field the occasion to share their visions and ideas.
350 Vietnam attended with a group of volunteers who came to support speaker and 350 Vietnam Coordinator Hong Hoang. In a 60 minute talk she shared her trips to Antarctica and her passion in engaging young people to take actions against climate change. She put special attention on Vietnam Power Shift
, which will take place in Ho Chi Minh City and other cities all over the country.
“I see significant potential in Vietnam”, concluded Matt Pakes, Director of Architecture for Atlas, a global provider of architectural and engineering services, in the following question answer period. Besides him about 30 eco friends and journalists from local media stations showed up.
For 350 Vietnam, Green Drinks was a great opportunity to catch up with link-minded people and to get inspired by their annotations and ideas.
