FuturED#4, Speakers confrimed

Please come along and bring the family!! futured4-web-banner

You are warmly invited to  FuturED#4 a speaker event held on the 5th October at Island School. FuturED#4  will focus on the theme of community and will be called “With Community Comes Unity”. We have 6 speakers, a band and a percussion workshop lined up as well as an input from a community photographer.

“Arguably traditional close knit communities in Hong Kong are diminishing. Increased numbers of people live in high rise public housing estates or residential developments. The frenetic lives of many Hong Kongers preclude them from doing more to strengthen a sense of local community and identity. Each of the speakers will be interpreting the theme in a different way but all will talk about how building communities is to the advantage of all.”
All the FuturED events are open to parents and the public. I would encourage you to attend this event as it promises to be an occasion not to be missed.

Please spread the word to any others you may think may be interested!
