Speaking to more than 100 Japanese students on Mekong River

Mekong River is one of the world’s longest and largest rivers. With the length of more than 4000 km running through 6 countries (China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam), Mekong is the source of livelihood of about 60 million peoples and biodiversity. Climate change and dams construction put the river at risk. We need to engage more stakeholders especially active students and youth in collectively managing this international river in a sustainable way.
