3:00pm - 7:00pm +07
(UTC +7hrs)
Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh

With the various topics from culture, globalization, personality, to science or altruism, our event aims to tackle the most popular topics in Vietnam nowadays and show the audience that they should stop inactively following the trends or accepting everything, but they should instead start interpreting things profoundly and creating their own living styles as well as trends. Although being connected to the global network and being extremely cautious of what is going on in the world, Vietnamese remain unaware their position in the world and their actual capabilities to innovate their lives.
With this theme, we want to bring up the popular, familiar and important topics to Vietnamese youth under different and new perspectives; hence, to inspire them with real stories, experiences and to motivate them to
take the action for their better lives.
