This research develops creative, youth-led perspectives and action on climate challenges facing one of the most populous, economically important and ethnically diverse areas in Vietnam. Young people working together in partnership, will be supported to identify imaginative ways to mitigate climate change challenges in the Red River catchment.
Youth-led work will explore how local, traditional and indigenous knowledge can develop understandings and strengthen local and societal resilience through an innovative partnership approach, incorporating peer-to-peer, intergenerational and cross-/intercultural forms of collaborative learning.
Utilising a participatory action research design and drawing upon anticolonial methods, the project will result in innovative forms of knowledge exchange rooted in these diverse ways of knowing, through the creation of culturally-specific forms of affective and aesthetic expression.
