“How can high-quality, inclusive and fair education be achieved?” - this was the guiding question that served as a red thread throughout the Alumniportal Deutschland’s Lab “No Future Without Education” that took place in Hanoi on 20 October 2017. Around 30 selected participants - Germany-Alumni, representatives from civil society and academia as well as German organisations (like DAAD; GIZ, or Goethe Intitute) - came together to network and share their knowledge and ideas on the topic of education.

In her opening remarks, Ms. Luisa Bergfeld, Deputy Head for Economic Co-operation, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, highlighted the importance of education as a key factor for development. Three highlevel experts – Dr. Nguyen Thi Kim Hoa, Vice Director, Research Center of Special Education, The Vietnam Institute of Educational Sciences, Dr. Tran Thi Thai Ha, Director and Associate Professor of Research Center for Manpower Training Needs Analysis and Forecast, Vietnam Institute of Educational Sciences and Dr. Vu Xuan Hung, National Institute for Vocational Education and Training – gave their input on Inclusive Education, Higher Education as well as the TVET-Labor Market to provide a deeper insight into specific education issues and the situation in Vietnam. Using innovative and participatory methods like “LEGO Serious Play”, “Journaling” or “World Café”, participants reflected on this input and their own role in the education sector, and drafted statements on how quality education for all can be achieved by 2030.

The Lab also gave the participants the opportunity to present, discuss and get valuable feedback on their own innovative project ideas – ranging from the ideas of creating online trainings for TVET trainers, to textile books for children with disabilities to a Sign language interpretation channel for people with hearing impairments.
The ideas and results collected from the Labs in Vietnam️, Kenya, Ethiopia and India will be displayed online on the Alumniportal Deutschland and during the Global Festival of Ideas in Bonn, Germany️, in 2018.

Here are some activities in the Lab:
