Project Citizens Forum: Can Our Values Survive New Challenges?
As you might probably have heard, our old friend, Margaret Ng, has recently published a book titled《拱心石下 — 從政十八年》, looking back on her 18 years in office as the representative of the legal profession in LegCo. In those 18 years (1995-2012), perhaps you would also find your footprints along those of Margaret? In her own words, "【這書】成了我這一代人，特別是法律界，在這關鍵十八年重大事故中為香港的奮鬥留下的紀錄"
Would you like to retrace those footsteps, and shall we, together with Margaret, look for a road that we may tread forward steadily?
We are writing to invite especially members of the legal profession to attend our coming Project Citizens Forum: Can Our Values Survive New Challenges? (公民實踐論壇：「十八相送：風雨同路」), with Margaret Ng, Nathan Law (羅冠聰), and Jason Lee (李澤恩) as speakers. Details of the Forum can be found in our eDM appended below.
Finally, we are a group which believe that active citizenship is the means to uphold the core values that underpin Hong Kong's success. In the past 3 years we have held forums, seminars and workshops on topics like press freedom, academic autonomy, good governance and leadership, with speakers including Chris Patten, John Tsang, Jasper Tsang, James Tien, Paul Shieh SC, ....
We have successfully held Project Citizens Forum “Can Our Values Survive New Challenges?“ on 15 September 2018. We have invited Dr Margaret Ng, Former member of the Legislative Council, Mr Nathan Law, Former member of the Legislative Council, Standing Committee member of Demosisto, Mr Jason Lee, Barrister. They have shared their personal experience in politics and legal field. The speakers have addressed the sense of powerlessness and possible ways to combat this feeling. So that Hong Kong will strive to protect our core values more vigorously. The Forum attracted more than 150 people to exchange ideas on Hong Kong future.
