Invitation for proposal (abstract) submission for the conference on “The Future of Whole Person Education in East Asian Higher Education: Its Philosophy and Endeavour from Within and Abroad,” 2019
With the support of generous donation from Tin Ka Ping Foundation, the Department of Religion and Philosophy and the Centre for Sino-Christian Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University are going to organize a conference on the theme “The Future of Whole Person Education in East Asian Higher Education: Its Philosophy and Endeavour from Within and Abroad”, to be held at Hong Kong Baptist University on Friday and Saturday, September 27-28, 2019. The conference is organized to pay tribute to the late Dr. Tin Ka Ping, a renowned education benefactor in the Greater China Region. The Foundation has provided funds to more than 90 tertiary institutions, 166 secondary schools, more than 40 primary schools and kindergartens, and over 1,650 suburban libraries across 34 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in the mainland China. In Hong Kong, more than 20 primary and secondary schools, kindergartens and elderly and youth care centers are named after Dr. Tin. We anticipate that the conference will share the vision of the importance of moral education and develop a culture of service and virtue cultivation in Chinese and East Asian Societies.
