Two Recent Sessions of I·CARE Salon: Nicely Concluded

The 18th and 19th sessions of I·CARE Salon were held on the 16th of October last year and on the 10th of this month respectively.  They drew an attendance of more than 580 CUHK students, staff, alumni, and members of the general public.  The participants had responded to both talks enthusiastically through raising many questions and sharing their own views in a candid way.

The 18th Session titled My Rethink about the Current Situation from a Perspective of Political Philosophy was presided by Prof. Joseph Chan from the Department of Politics and Public Administration of The University of Hong Kong.  He examined the recent political situation, analysed the legitimacy of the government, and delineated how one should respond to the social unrest.

The 19th Session had Dr. Derrick Au, Director of CUHK Centre for Bioethics, to speak on Confronting a Mental Health Epidemic.  He, on one hand, outlined the emotional disturbance encountered by the Hong Kong people in the recent social unrest, and on the other hand, pointed out the challenges of handling a mental health epidemic.  With the demonstration of a basket of similar cases happened in Hong Kong and overseas in previous decades, he articulated how Hong Kong can mend societal rift.

The I·CARE Salon is a programme, which promotes reflective thinking on different topics, under the University Lecture on Civility.  Through a series of talks, participants are able to exchange insights on significant academic, cultural and social issues.  Please stay tuned for our announcements about the I·CARE Salon in coming months.
