  • 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?

    TRUST (November 25, 2018)

    (18:14:36 PM 23/11/2018)

    I remember a famous saying “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break  and forever to repair”. I used to contemplate the ways to build good  relationships, as above all, the quality of life is determined by  relationships and problems also arise in troubled relationships. It  dawned on me that the sustainability of relationships is based on mutual  trust. A customer is inclined to buy a  product if the salesperson has developed a harmonious relationship with  him. A boss tends to grant promotion opportunity to the employee who  gains his trust first.
      The question of how trust can be built  remains controversial. Many people think that using body language or  nice voice can gain others’ trust, while some people believe that  building trust requires many more things and can be challenging if the  people involved do not put respect for each other first.
      Come to Advance Hanoi this Sunday to discuss this topic and share your experience.
     
    Questions to ponder:

     1. What signals that a person has trusted you?
     2. In what jobs do people find it harder to trust each other?
      3. Why is it hard to build trust? People are more and more skeptical  and less easy to trust others. Do you think it’s true? Why?
     4.  Earnest Hemmingway said “The best way to find out if you can trust  somebody is to trust them”. Do you agree with his statement? Why?
     5. How can people build trust in their relationships? What techniques can people use to build trust?
