Join us on Thursday, February 28, at 12:30 pm for a discussion with:
Hong Hoang, Obama Scholar, Founder and Executive Director of CHANGE
Social Change under Government Supervision in Vietnam
Vietnam is a one party-state that faces many environmental and social challenges. Civil society organizations are poised to help these challenges while they operate under close government supervision. In this presentation, Hong Hoang will share the experience of CHANGE, a CSO that activates youth, communities and the public on issues of climate and energy, wildlife conservation and sustainability. She will discuss the process of establishing CHANGE as a legal organization as well as how it mobilizes resources, implements its mission, and navigates the parameters set by the Vietnamese government.
We will be meeting at the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, room 5401
