The D. H. Chen Foundation Scholars Inspired at ‘Why “Glocal” Matters, HK?’
What are the “glocal” challenges faced by the new generation in the wake of globalization and the rise of nationalism? How can international education address some of these challenges? What attributes, values and skills should international education focus on then? These were the questions discussed at the forum dinner Why “Glocal” Matters, HK? The Importance of International Education held on Nov 24, 2016 at Club Lusitano.
Thanks to the support of NarrativeHK, seven of our Scholars joined the forum dinner. Two internationally renowned education leaders, Dr. Donald Markwell (Senior Adviser on Higher Education/National Security & Constitutional Issues to Australian Government/Rhodes Scholar & Former Warden of Rhodes House) and Ms. Natalie Brett, (Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of the Arts London & Head, London College of Communication) shared their insight and suggested that international education is even more pertinent in today’s political and economic context around the world. The attending Scholars also shared with each other their ideas on how to contribute to education in their own capacity.
The Foundation hopes that by offering our Scholars the opportunities to dialogue with respectable leaders in different fields, they will be further inspired to make use of their intellect, talent and commitment to service to drive substantial social good in the future.
