“Focusing on the Future, Working Together to Achieve SDGs”
2023 Proposal Competition of the College of Management
隨著全球面臨著各式複雜的問題，例如氣候變化、環境污染、人口過剩、貧富差距等，各國政府與國際社會必須共同努力、尋找解決方案與推動全球永續發展。為此，聯合國在2015年提出了永續發展目標（Sustainable Development Goals，簡稱SDGs），旨在於經濟、社會和環境三方面實現永續發展。
As the world faces a variety of complex issues, such as climate change, environmental pollution, overpopulation, and the wealth gap, governments around the world and the international community must work together to find solutions and promote global sustainable development. To this end, in 2015, the United Nations proposed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which aim to achieve sustainable development in three areas: economic, social and environmental.
In light of this, students in the College of Management should learn how to apply what they have learned, identify problems to be solved, and propose feasible solutions to contribute to the realization of the SDGs. Therefore, our office will hold an SDG proposal competition again this year, and we encourage students to actively participate. We hope participants will propose innovative and sustainable solutions and incorporate SDGs into their proposals in order to help solve many of the social, economic and environmental problems that we face today.
In this competition, we will evaluate the feasibility of the teams’ proposals, their links to the SDGs, and the participants’ past contributions to the SDGs. After the evaluation process, we will select a few outstanding proposals to award and recognize. In addition, proposals of the participating teams may be adopted by the ORSA, the College of Managements, departments, institutes, or other organizations of the College as part of our future sustainability program.
