Talkshow on Green Development Options for Vietnam, “iPhone or iRice” is the pre-event for Green Empowering Contest. It is an interactive plenum on Green Development Options for Vietnam, focusing on Food Security in general and in Vietnam in particular. This event is within the framework of Europe Days in Vietnam 2013.
The fact that in 2012, Vietnam was a leading country in exporting coffee, rice and agriculture, but Vietnam is now facing many challenges in climate change, economic crisis as well as pollution. “What will be the sustainable development options for Vietnam – to invest in industry or in agriculture?” is still a concern of many people. The iPhone or iRice will provide the space to discuss and have a look at where Vietnam’s position is. As the targeted audience and supporting networks of this event are especially addressing the young people, it is exciting to see their point of view, what can be done for a sustainable future in Vietnam.
There will be various activities including a short video clip competition, funny quiz beside the main panel discussion with representatives from the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development, Oxfam, True Action Group, University of Agriculture in Hanoi, as well as Business representatives to ensure a lively debate.
