In her address on behalf of all honorary fellows, Prof Fang pointed out that integrity, freedom and justice, rule of law, compassion and respect for humanity are core values the people of Hong Kong treasure and uphold. All sectors of civil society should come together to affirm these values in action. “The construct of a fair and prosperous society is not just the responsibility of the government or the politicians. Every small step that each can take forward together will become a great leap of progress for society. As the emblem of Lingnan shows, the road to the summit is there through the clouds and by virtue of hard work,” she said.
To live up to Lingnan’s motto of “Education for Service”, Prof Fang called upon all Lingnanians “to take the future into their hands and work together to make Hong Kong a society that can bring hope, love, prosperity and pride to the people”.
