The today’s initiatives are the basic premise opening up new directions for building standards and practice of a global citizens, leading the world towards universal and noble values.

The people of Vietnam has a long and rich history of self-defense in which national defense ideology seems to match the today’s conference’s idea of people joining hands in protecting cybersecurity. Vietnam’s experience in launching national defense campaign and social security will certainly be utilized to protect cybersecurity.

With such tradition, in the capacity as the President of Dalat University signing an MoU with the Boston Global Forum during the opening of the Conference, I affirm that Dalat University will take the lead in implementing today’s Conference’s initiatives announced by the Boston Global Forum. We will mobilize faculties and students of Dalat University to utilize the Global Citizenship Code (GCN), Global Citizenship Score Card (GCS), achieving global citizenship certificate, apply and practice Ethic Code of Conduct for Cyber peace and security (ECCC), actively participate in the network of global citizens, and strive to have excellent students and outstanding faculty to become members of Global Citizenship Leadership program.

In the Central Highlands of Vietnam where many ethnic minorities are inhabitating, Dalat University will bring the today’s ideas, the network of global citizenship education to those peoples. From such experience, Dalat University can contribute solutions to bring global citizenship education to areas whose standards and the universal values of humanity are still differentiated and debated such as the Middle East. We also believe that the experience of Dalat University in application and practice of ECCC will be possible to deploy to other regions such as the Middle East, Latin America, Southeast Asia, South Asia…

In late October of this year, in the wake of Dalat University celebrating its 40th Anniversary, the University will hold a Workshop on implementation of the today’s initiatives on 25 October, 2016 collaboration with the Boston Global Forum, Global Citizen Education Program UNESCO and UCLA.

The best students and faculties of Dalat University will participate in implementing initiatives in Vietnam.

We would like to thank Governor Professor Michael Dukakis for accepting DLU as institutional member of BGF thanks to the support and promotion of Mr Nguyen Anh Tuan, Dalat University’s Alumni and former faculty, who are now working for the BGF and UCLA. This is an advantage for Dalat University to cooperate, participate in the new initiative and take the lead in VN in GCE and Cybersecurity.

May you enjoy health

May the initiatives of the conference become reality worldwide

May the Boston Global Forum continue its contribution to peace, security and creativity of mankind.
