International Green Campus Project between TVU and Swinburne on the move

“This is the second year Green Project is implemented. This demonstrates the commitment of the two Universities for sustainable development,” said Mr. Tran Van Trong, TVU’s Vice Rector, in his welcoming speech to kick off the Green Campus project. This program lasts 2 weeks in Tra Vinh city.

 

Seventeen Swinburne students majored in different disciplines including Biotechnology, Chemistry, Community Health, Biomedical, Design, Film, Business, and Sustainable Development have participated in this project.

 

Students from Swinburne and TVU form into six groups to survey the environmental situation on TVU’s Campus One to write proposals for the Rector to consider.

 

In addition to these activities, 34 students of the two Universities participate in community activities such as collecting waste at Ba Om Pond. They provide the orphanage with computers and build a playground for children. They also help farmers to harvest peanuts at Duyen Hai district.

 

The Swinburne team leader, environmental chemist Dr. Francois Malherbe, said: "Swinburne students have a chance to interact with the real environment in a remote province that is very different from that of Australia, so it helps them to enrich their knowledge."
