服務學習及環球公民國際研討暨博覽會 (線上)
2021

The Service-Learning and Leadership Office (SLLO) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is pleased to announce the International Symposium and Expo on Service-Learning and Socially Responsible Global Citizenship, to be held online on July 9-10, 2021. Through this Online Symposium and Expo, we hope to connect teachers, students, and the community to share their Service-Learning (SL) experiences and showcase their projects without the physical limitations of geographical boundaries and the hassles of time zones.  
香港理工大學(理大)服務學習及領導才能發展處(SLLO)將於二零二一年七月九日至十日在線上舉辦「服務學習及環球公民國際研討暨博覽會」,藉此一個不受地域、時間限制的交流平台連繫教師、學生及社區,分享彼此的服務學習經驗和項目。

The COVID-19 pandemic imposed social distancing on all of us and precipitated a plethora of changes in serving the community. It forced us to clarify our beliefs and reiterate our determination to serve. Reflecting on the one-year anniversary of the pandemic, one key lesson we have learned is that creative, caring, inclusive and regular communication between different partners can lead to an improved understanding of individual responsibility and foster a greater capacity to adopt “the new normal”. Learning about how others have adjusted and adapted their practices and learning can be a stepping stone to a “new future”, that is not just a stopgap that has to be adopted during this difficult time, but has far-reaching potentials for benefitting the community at large and reaching out to the most excluded ones, both right now and in the future beyond COVID-19.
疫情肆虐限制了社交距離,嚴重影響了各種社區服務,亦促使我們重新定義我們的信念和服務的決心。反思過去一年,我們從中體會到創新、關懷、包容以及緊密聯繫不同的夥伴,可以提升個人責任感的認知,並從而更從容接納「新常態」。同時,廣納不同人的實踐經驗和應對方法,不僅是渡過這艱難時期的權宜之計,惠及當前社會以及備受忽視的弱勢群體 ,更可以一起創出全新的「未來」。

Through the Symposium and Expo, we target to provide spaces for like-minded colleagues to share practices, expertise and collaborations. There will be inspirational talks, exhibition rooms, poster sessions, or even interactive workshops. It will take place online, and we will use technology to facilitate participants to have spontaneous conversations with those around them and explore different interactable objects.
是次博覽會將設有不同的講座、展覽、海報,以及互動工作坊,讓參加者交流實踐經驗、專業知識及合作模式。參加者更可隨意在展區遊覽參觀,與身旁其他參加者進行交流,搜尋、探索各種互動展品。

We sincerely invite you to join us!
誠意邀請你的參與!
