Project Information

The project “Engaging Vietnamese preschool and school students in climate action education, through interactive, immersive online learning experiences about the wetland ecosystem in Vietnam” is an initiative by Center for Family Health and Community Development (CFC), in partnership with Vietnam Association for Nonpublic Preschool Education (VANPPE); Viettel High Tech and KidsEdu STEM. 

Students at all levels, from preschool to high school students in Vietnam should have open access to actionable climate change education, through interactive, rich, and appropriate online learning experiences. Our team is committed to: 

– Make the learning resources developed in this initiative Open Educational Resources (OER), for open access and use by all students and teachers nationwide.

– Best practices in developing climate change education contents are widely promoted and shared, starting with the initiative “virtual learning tour to Xuan Thuy National Park”; for schools in every province in Vietnam to use as reference and develop locality-specific climate change education contents in the “Local Education” curriculum (Giáo dục về địa phương).

Since 2018, the national school curriculum approved by Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam has included experiential learning in each grade level, including visits to national parks for students. However, due to limited resources, not all school students can visit national parks in person. 

With this virtual learning platform, teachers and students from anywhere in Vietnam can experience a “virtual tour” to national parks, starting with Xuan Thuy National Park, learn about the importance of wetland ecosystem conservation and climate action. 

The project builds an interactive (360 degree) online learning platform showing primary school students and preschool students the importance of ecosystem conservation and protection, starting with developing a 360-degree on-line learning portal of the Xuan Thuy National Park in Nam Dinh, Vietnam. 

Experience Virtual Tours to National Parks

Xuan Thuy National Park
Xuan Thuy National Park, located in Nam Dinh Province, Vietnam, is an important nature reserve known for its rich mangrove ecosystem. It is the habitat of many rare plant and animal species and serves as a stopover for migratory birds.

Cat Ba National Park

Cat Ba National Park, located on Cat Ba Island, Hai Phong, is a biodiversity-rich nature reserve with primary forests, diverse flora and fauna, and stunning natural landscapes, attracting nature and adventure enthusiasts.

Van Long National Park

Located on the northernmost tip of the Pu Luong-Cuc Phuong limestone mountain range, Van Long National Park (Ramsar Site no.2360) is one of the few intact lowland inland wetlands remaining in the Red River Delta. It is centred on a block of limestone karst outcrops that rise abruptly from the flat coastal plain of northern Vietnam. The freshwater lake, marshes and swamps that surround the karst, together with subterranean hydrological systems, form a wetland complex that is very rare in the Indochinese Peninsula. The limestone hills are famous for providing habitat for the critically endangered Delacour’s langur (Trachypithecus delacouri), one of the world’s 25 most endangered primates. The Site is home to more than half of the global population and is the only place where the species can be observed in the wild.
