On May 3th, 2018 Can Tho City Resilience Office organized a seminar on “Design thinking” with 12 participations from  4 core working groups of the 2nd phase. They are from Department of Construction, Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Department of Planning and Investment, and Department of Labor, War invalids and Social Affairs, Can Tho Climate Change Coordination Office, and Can Tho City Resilience Office. The seminar aims at providing some basic theory and practices on design thinking approach, and from that defining more effective and innovative initiatives for the four discovery areas in the next stage of resilience strategy development. Design thinking is  an effective approach of thinking for complex problem-solving, which is particularly helpful for building resilience strategies.
At the seminar, Dr. Nguyen Hieu Trung, Can Tho CRO, shared the principle of “Design thinking”. After that,  to fully grasp the shared knowledge, participants worked in pairs and groups to define problems and propose creative and feasible solutions for one selected issue of the four discovery areas. Finally, participants had another exercise to identify innovative solutions to increase sustainable job opportunities for poor and low-skilled laborers in the city. Several solutions were proposed, one of the most innovative solutions is to develop a mobile phone application to bridge  information gaps between laborers (job supplier), labor users (job-market demand), and vocational training centers (skill provider).
To close up the seminar, Dr. Nguyen Hieu Trung hoped that the participants will apply  this approach in their work and especially in proposing effective strategies for the four discovery areas in the next stage. The participants expressed their desire to learn more tools, knowledge and experiences from the 100RC networks./.
