悟思沙龍 5C Salon 

<一頁舟 ・ 悟思沙龍>


身在英倫

過去兩三年間,不少朋友先後落戶英倫,能否以此為家?関鍵之一是增加對英國的深層了解和感性的認同。那管是旅居心態,也不妨藉此時空,探究此地的人文精神及源由。


思潮起伏

英國由工業化開始,城市經濟起飛,社會結構改變,思想逐漸開放。在學術風氣自由下,大學名師輩出,思潮起伏,當中不少的學術主張,帶動著創新思維和社會變革,大大影響英國、歐洲、美國,以至中國的政治發展的歷程,至今仍然影響著全球的政治關係、經濟分配,以至社會制度的實踐。


尋根正本

現代社會我們習以為常的理念或設想,例如法治、公權、社會福利、全民醫療、公共廣播、工會運動等,其理論基礎均源於英國著名學者。學者們不少曾任教及寫作於倫敦,生活足跡近在咫尺,他們看到的是怎麼樣的世界?他們渴望見到的又是怎麽樣的國度?當年的論述如何承先啟後,又如何影響我們現在的思維和生活呢?


<一頁舟 ・ 悟思沙龍>

<一頁舟>珍惜實體聚會,欣賞人與人的互動及理念啟發。計畫在2023年4-6月及9-11月期間,在倫敦 Belsize Park 圖書館,每月舉辦一次實體沙龍。沙龍會𨘋請學者、專家或資深從業員擔任講員,擬定一個題目,由淺入深,鑑古知今。沙龍亦會締造討論平台和空間,讓參與者自由討論,互相交流學習。


5C Salon @Gathering Leaves


Here and Now in UK


In the last couple of years, many Hongkongers, like us, have come to settle in the UK.  Is the UK our home?  How can we affectionately identify ourselves with this country?  

Gathering Leaves Hong Kong believes we can be here to help.  

In the coming months, we will organise a Salon named “5C Salon”, which stands for Convergence of Cultures, Conversation, as well as Connection with the Community. 

The “5C Salon” will be hosted by different speakers from Hong Kong with academic and professional backgrounds.   The first series will start from April to June, and the second one will be from September to November 2023, in Belsize Community Library. 


Series 1: Humanity and Modernity


London has always been “the place” for the development of political theories, liberal thoughts and modern ideas, all of which we can explore more here.  

In the very first series, we will focus on the topic of Humanity and Modernity. Values on the rule of law, social welfare and media cultures that make the UK and the world today will also be covered.
