APNME conferences provide a forum for educators from various disciplines, and with specific interests in the Asia-Pacific region, to come together for the sharing and exchange of ideas, perspectives, experiences, practices, research and resources with regard to teaching and learning in the areas of moral education, values education and citizenship education.

APNME encourages and welcomes open debate during its conferences in identifying, reflecting, deliberating on and discussing any issues related to moral, values or citizenship education and development and addressing moral issues and values questions faced by educators and students.  Views and opinions expressed by presenters or other participants during APNME conferences (including invited speakers) do not necessarily reflect (and are not expected necessarily to reflect) those of APNME or commit APNME in any way.
