The Embassy Education Group announced its official debut in Vietnam at a ceremony held in Ho Chi Minh City on October 10, where it also announced strategic cooperation with educational partners from across the globe, including Reggio Children (Italy), Harvard Graduate School of Education - Project Zero (US), the University of Turku, a member of Finland University (Finland), and 180 Studio (US).

In cooperation with some of the top educational institutions, educators, researchers and practitioners from around the world, Embassy Education will address the future of learning and the need to reimagine learning in the 21st century at the two-day Seed & Spark Summit on October 11 and 12.

The summit is part of a series of educational activities to be conducted by the Embassy Education Group to bring updates in the world of education to Vietnam. Through the planting of seeds and the lighting of sparks, it hopes to equip the young generation to become future ambassadors who preserve local values, continue to be proud of their Vietnamese identity, and assert themselves as true global citizens.

Embassy Education Group will provide a continuum of learning through an integrated learning experience that guides young people, from pre-school all the way through high school and beyond, on how to pursue lives of fulfilment and purpose.

“The world will continue to change, and we don’t know what the future will look like, but if we equip our children with strong core values: respect, integrity, understanding and responsibility, I believe that this will build ambassadors for the country who are also true global citizens,” said Mr. Bui Vu Thanh, Founder of Embassy Education.

“Creativity is a quality of thought that belongs to all children - the future ambassadors of the country,” said Professor Claudia Giudici, President of Reggio Children. “Our role is to create the conditions and environments where creativity is awakened and nurtured.”

The conditions and environments Professor Giudici refers to have a strong focus on Creative Education through the Reggio Emilia Approach, which helps develop the potential of each individual child. This is also one of the important aspects the Embassy organization will focus on, equipping young Vietnamese children with the conditions, environments and core values that build on their strengths and inspire each to discover their unique voice, potential, and future path, and above all develop them to become the best version of themselves.
