It has been a strange and difficult year, and at times we feel disheartened. How could we make the strangeness, hardship and sorrow worthwhile?  How should we learn, re-imagine and campaign for a better tomorrow? 

 

The first two principles of WHO’s constitution stipulates:

 

  • Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. 

 

  • The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition. 

 

And such was the constitution adopted after the war in 1946. When we review what Hong Kong has gone through today, what improvements do we need to make our city a better and healthier place?

 

The talk, to be conducted in Cantonese, will be shown via WMA Facebook Live.
