Session IV Theme : “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights”

Session V Theme : “The Role of Religion in modern, scientific culture”


Religion and science are indeed incompatible. Religion and science both offer explanations for why life and the universe exist. Science relies on testable empirical evidence and observation. Religion relies on subjective belief in a creator. The problems arise when science begins to think it’s religion, and religion thinks it’s science.

While most modern people resort to science and technology to deal with the demands of life, religion still provides the deeper meaning and purpose of human existence. But it is also evident that some modern people quietly dismiss religion as irrational and irrelevant to their needs.




Academic Leaders Session VI : “Value and Values”


Value has been taken to mean moral ideas, general conceptions or orientations towards the world or sometimes simply interests, attitudes, preferences, needs, sentiments and dispositions. “A value is a belief that something is good and desirable” Whereas “Values are the ideas in the mind of men compared to norms in that they specify how people should behave. Values also attach degrees of goodness to activities and relationships”

Value is not values imposition or values indoctrination. It is not a direct inculcation of certain values and morals. Value education does not intent to promote passive conformity or blind obedience to whatever values that are taught. However, it recognises that blind following of habit out of fear of authority or regard to tradition, customs or conventions is a stage in development of ones values.
