The website, part of online game publisher and e-commerce company Vinagame, launched the project in collaboration with the Saigon 350 Group.
 
Under the program, teens from HCMC’s High School for the Gifted; Nguyen Thi Minh Khai High School; Practicing High School under the HCMC University of Pedagogy; and Le Hong Phong High School are learning about environmental issues and responsibility.
 
The three-hour classes are designed to be dynamic and engaging, beginning with a short documentary film about environmental topics, followed by a talk from a representative of the HCMC Institute of Tropical Biology.
 
Students are encouraged to ask questions during the discussion and are then quizzed on the material they’ve learned.
 
Organizers hope the classes will help teens come away with a greater appreciation for the environment and become more involved in environmental protection efforts.
