This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the inauguration of Service-Learning at Lingnan. To celebrate the fruits of Service-Learning and further promote this pedagogical tool, the University will organize a series of symposiums focusing on faculty, community, students and regional partnership respectively.
With the support from the Tuen Mun District Social Welfare Office and the Yuen Long District Social Welfare Office, the Service-Learning Symposium 2 with the theme of “Community-University Partnership: Learn about Community Needs and Build a Sustainable City” was held on 10 November. Apart from representatives from the Government, over a hundred collaborators from the social welfare sector, education sector and community organizations joined the Symposium to discuss the issues of ageing population, community building and community engagement and Service-Learning. It served as a successful platform to learn about community needs and emphasise the importance of cross-sector collaboration.
