One Step Forward • One Decade
In Chinese language usage, “ten” is not only a number but also concurrently symbolizes the culmination of a development stage. As such, very often we can hear about the saying of “achievements made in a decade”.
In 2016 it is just the year of the 10th anniversary of the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) at Lingnan University. In retrospect, perhaps we should be humble in claiming any “achievements made in a decade”. Nevertheless, through this 10 years' well-honed experience we have managed to link together faculties, students and community members, who have utilized their professional knowledge to respond in unison to various social issues. Their major purpose has been to contribute to the building of a sustainable society. Taking the opportunity to celebrate this 10th anniversary, we set the theme of this annual report as “One Step Forward • One Decade”. We accordingly invited stakeholders from different walks of life to share their Service-Learning experiences and to review what we have undertaken during the past decade.
A decade may not be enough to let us build a patch of blue sky. But only if we embrace common belief can we roll out, step by step, as the next chapter, another bright and dazzling decade.
