As globalization is championed, with countries joining a mutual “flat world”, each individual is one important link in the development of mankind. Therefore, that the definition of “global citizens” itself carrying the responsibility and action associated with global issues has become a new trend of the future.

Together with integration, global citizen trend has helped Vietnamese youngsters access new knowledge sources more easily and quickly, thereby sharpen their knowledge and skills while getting more opportunities to explore the world. Such personal development is the driving force behind a more progressive country and society.

AXIS OF EVIL team has had a presentation evaluated as convincing and updated about the “Annual International Day of Anti-Epidemic Preparedness” which falls on December 27. The day is a novel initiative started by Vietnam and adopted by the United Nations at the beginning of last December.

“Global citizen” has been so far not an uncommon concept. However, the journey to becoming a global citizen requires more diverse experience and skills than what students are taught at educational establishments. The competition aims at supporting practical activities that benefit society, especially the future talents, thereby Vietnamese university students have been inspired and aspirated to build a sustainable community.
