Discovery Indochina at 2019 Uniterra annual review meeting

During March 13-14, 2019, the World University Service of Canada (WUSC) in Vietnam organized its Uniterra annual meeting. The objectives of the meeting were to review the past year achievements, discuss priorities for the coming years and for partners and volunteers to network in order to strengthen cooperation.

Mrs. Mary Beshai – our Asia Regional Coordinator-, our volunteers and our partners attended the meeting. It was also an opportunity for our partners to share their achievements and highlight the successful support provided WUSC during the past year.

The Tourism Department – Hanoi Open University presented their responsible tourism training program, a new program for students;

The director of the Volunteer for Education Organization (V.E.O) presented two development projects supported by WUSC to improve leadership and soft skills of the students while promoting the community-based tourism by building a homestay booking platform;

Saigon Tourist Hospitality College shared a book review on Innovation in Hospitality Education – Anticipating the Education Needs of a Changing Profession.

Additionally, a group of volunteers delivered a presentation on the Green Initiative implemented by WUSC in order to inspire our partners to reduce plastic waste to keep our planet clean.

Moreover, other volunteers shared their knowledge and achievements with their partners in Vietnam on business planning and partnership development.

All the participants have found the knowledge sharing interesting and useful to their work. Discovery Indochina is proud of being a part in this helpful program. We gave the chance for volunteer to contribute and develop themselves. Besides we hopes our contribution, even smallest, can build a solid foundation for a sustainable tourism in Vietnam.
