Communication is essential to the social life of human beings. We, as in a group-living habitat, rely on it for exchanging information, building relationships and creating a more civilised world. While communication adds value to social harmony, on the other hand, messages with negative connotations or rumours sustain or even power up through ongoing propagation. Arising from prevalence of online social platforms such as Facebook and discussion forums, cyber-bullying is typical yet devastative result of disseminating offensive messages across netizens. What can we do to promote social harmony, instead of generating unpleasant personal insults?
To nurture students’ whole person development, Lingnan University recently joined the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) launched by former US President Bill Clinton in 2007 to engage young leaders on university campuses around the world.
