Principal Supervisor(s): Dr. CHEUNG Hang Cheong Derek, Dr. LEUNG Cheuk Hang, Dr. LO Chun Yeung Edwin, Dr. NG Ka Leung Andy

This project aims to develop a knowledge management web application for both UGFN1000 In Dialogue with Nature and UGFH1000 In Dialogue with Humanity in the General Education Foundation Programme, in order to cultivate students as responsible cyber citizens who are able to bridge classics texts with contemporary global issues, and have a keen sense of global awareness at home.

Global citizens should be equipped with scientific and civic literacy in order to facilitate their participation in the virtual world as informed and critical knowledge processors. This project provides students with knowledge management tools in forming a virtual learning community to apply the scientific and civic knowledge learned from classics on international issues happening in the real world, thus enhancing their awareness on both the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and other contemporary global scientific, environmental, social and civic issues.
