The Center for Sustainable Development Studies (CSDS) was established in 2009 as local, non-governmental, non-profit organisation which currently includes approx. 20 people as its staff. CSDS aims to promote education for sustainable development through capacity building of people and organizations in order to address development challenges in Vietnam. CSDS uses education and training as well as volunteering to achieve its aims. CSDS works with international agencies, the CSO community and universities. Over the past 9 years they have worked with over 3,000 youth in Vietnam. CSDS runs the Social Innovation and Incubation Hub that aims to facilitate youth’s action to support the communities and through that strengthen their own skills for future employability.
