Welcome to our website with its invitation to participate in a unique and special international moral education conference to be held in Nanjing, China, 24-28 October 2011.

Our conference is unique in that it will bring together, for the first time, three major organisations for moral education: the 37th annual conference of the Association for Moral Education, the 6th annual conference of The Asia-Pacific Network for Moral Education and the Journal of Moral Education, celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Our conference is also special in that it will be held in Nanjing, China, a new venue for most participants from around the world. Here we shall offer you a full programme of stimulating academic and enjoyable cultural activities in a comfortable hotel, in an autumnal leafy mountain setting, surrounded by ancient and modern historic sites.

The conference is being hosted by the Research Institute for Moral Education, Nanjing Normal University and is supported by the National Centre for Ethical Studies, Renmin University of China, Beijing –two of the one hundred key research institutes in China. We hope that the coming together of these organisations and institutions in the Asia Pacific region, where moral education is valued and prioritised, will provide new opportunities for interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue, re-orient, deepen and broaden horizons for moral education in the years ahead.

The international conference organisation committee hopes you will enjoy visiting our website resource, and that, as it develops, your excitement at participation in this exceptional event will also grow. We look forward to warmly welcoming you in Nanjing next October.
