Education is among effective tools to build climate change (CC) resilience. Higher education institutions have a crucial role to play in such difficult tasks. Despite existing and prospective impacts of CC in Vietnam, there are very few publications related to teaching CC at a higher education level. Thus, the research was designed to present initial efforts to mainstream CC at higher education. This artice firstly presents the students’ reflections after participating in two CC training courses. Then, it draws lessons learned based on student discussion and recommendation before analyzing a teaching strategy to ensure the success of teaching CC. Those lessons learned and the teaching strategy can be applied to encourage CCE at other higher education institutions.
