  • Topic of this Week: "Green Consumption (April 21, 2019)"

    Green consumption behaviour is a form of pro-environmental  consumption that harms the environment as little as possible, or even  benefits the environment. This notion seems to be unpopular in our  country, despite the fact that Vietnam, together with four other  countries, discharge 60 per cent of the world’s plastic waste into the  ocean.
    A green consumption behaviour comes from an individual acting ethically, motivated not only by personal needs,  but also by the respect and preservation of the environment. To help  combat climate change, behaviours that are strongly encouraged including  (but not limited to) (i) decreasing energy and water consumption; (ii)  changing your eating and transportation habits to conserve natural  resources; and (iii) reducing, reusing, and recycling to be more  environmentally friendly.
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
     1. Please share your story. What did you do as an action of green  consumption? Do you think it's enough? If not, what else should you do  and how hard it is to commit?
     2. Is it fashionable to follow the international trend of sustainable consumption? Explain?
     3. What are the benefits of engaging in green consumption? What are the  obstacles of Vietnamese people to changing their consumption  behaviours?
     4. Do you think green consumption can really help battle  environmental pollution in Vietnam? If yes, how do you encourage people  taking action?

    INITIATIVE (Januray 20, 2019)

    (10:37:38 AM 23/01/2019)

    Initiative is the ability to decide and  act on your own without waiting for somebody to tell you what to do.  This is critically important not only to a person’s career advancement  but also to enterprises. In fact, one of the reasons for the lack of  initiative in many places in Vietnam lies in the educational approach  both at home and at school. Many parents fail to expose their children  to different environment and too protective of them, which leads to  their lack of independence and decisiveness. Schools also play a crucial  role when the syllabus and teaching method tend to impede the students’  freedom to present their ideas and boost their creativity.
    This  will present a serious concern in the long run because the lack of  initiative means less productive workforce to build the economy.
    What do you think of this issue? Come to Advance Hanoi this Sunday to discuss and contribute your personal opinions.
     

    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
     1. Are you a person with considerable initiative? If yes, tell us how it helps you at work.
     2. How important is initiative at work? In what job is initiative especially required?
      3. Why do many people tend to lack initiative at work? Does the culture  have a role to play? What consequences can the lack of initiative  cause?
     4. Extroverts tend to have more initiative than introverts. Do you agree with the statement?
     5. How can employers increase their employees’ initiative at work? How can an inactive person increase their own initiative?
