06. June 2018

On the first of June 2018 the first series of five workshops with representatives of different societal organisations in Vietnam like women unions, youth organisations, farmers union, local unions, environmental organisations, local authorities, schools and universities ended successfully in Can Tho in the Mekong Delta.

In these training workshops participants received constitutive information regarding the status of the realisation of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures in Germany and Vietnam. In addition they experimented with “hands on models“ and preserved further knowledge about practical examples of the implementation in rural and urban areas.

Subsecuently the participants developed own implementation strategies for their regions by using the future workshop methodology. A field trip to the province of An Giang supplemented the workshop in Can Tho in order to visit photovoltaic applications, biogas plants and improved cook stoves. This field trip offered the participants the opportunity to exchange experiences with different users of these technologies.

Further training workshops took place in September 2017 in Hanoi, in January 2017 in Da Nang and in May 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City. The feedback of the participants of all training workshops was very positive.

Out of the five training workshops twenty persons will be identified to participate in a „train the trainer“ workshop in order to implement own seminars in field of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the future.
