Hanoi, May 25 (VNA) - Phan Tram Anh, 21, will represent Vietnam at a United Nations Alliance of Civilisation and Education First Summer School programme in New York from June 13 to 20.

Under the theme Youth for Change, Anh will join 74 other young leaders from various countries, exchanging views on global challenges such as diversified cultures and climate change.

Anh, a third-year student at the National Economics University, was chosen from a pool of 3,200 Vietnamese students.

"While I'm there I'll introduce Vietnam's rich culture heritage to people from around the world, and discuss gender equality and climate change with them," Anh said.
