    Please note that the questions below are framed in general terms. You are free to take the general question, and answer with respect to a specific case, context or situation - providing that you make that explicit in your answer.


  1. 當經濟成長的概念(及實踐)遇上永續發展的概念(及實踐)(如果有差異的話)差異何在?兩個概念(及實踐)間是否有共同要素,其為何?
    What are the differences, if any, between the concept (and practice) of economic growth, on the one side, versus the concept and practice of sustainable development, on the other? What are the common elements, if any, between these two concepts (and practices)?

  2. 請由下列兩個問題擇回答
    Please answer one of the two questions below:

    The terms "sustainability" and "sustainable development" are closely connected, and often used interchangeably. In your view, is there a difference? If so, what is it? If not. Why not?

    或 ─
    Or —

    What does sustainable production mean? What does sustainable consumption mean? Why are these questions relevant? Please respond with reference so specific examples. Illustrate with respect to literatures or examples.

  3. 「共同悲劇」常被拿來當做明確表達主要永續性困境的方法。「悲劇」指的是什麼?「教訓」指的是什麼?這個主張對國與國之間的永續性情況有何意義?這個「悲劇」與國家以外的演員和單位有關嗎?如果是的話,聯係何在?如果沒關係,你的論點為何?
    "The Tragedy of the Commons" is often used as a devise through which to articulate key sustainability dilemmas. What is the 'tragedy'? What are the 'lessons'? What does this representation mean for sustainability conditions within countries? Is the 'tragedy' relevant to actors and units other than the state? If so, how? If not, why not?

  4. 比較及對照國家的角色及功能及企業(一國或跨國)的角色及功能邁向永續性之潛在過渡時期。
    Compare and contrast the role and function of the state, on the one hand, with the role and function of the firm (national or multinational), on the other, in potential transitions toward sustainability.

  5. 請寫出一篇有關於國際機構對環境及/或永續性挑戰的短評,請舉例並列出參考來源說明具體的一邊是「挑戰」及另一邊是「回應」的組合。
    Please write an essay on international institutional responses to environmental and/or sustainability challenges. Please elaborate with reference to specific sets of 'challenges', on the one hand, and of 'responses', on the other.
