Dragon 100: Finding the Footprints of the Dragon
Professor David Lung  

HKFYG helps to promote awareness of shared heritage through the Dragon Foundation programme, Dragon 100. Every year, it brings young Chinese leaders from other continents to China. Here they can explore their roots and exchange perspectives while building a synergistic network for communication and community-strengthening when they return home. Nourishing their sense of identity and stimulating a sense of unity are two of the goals.

The programme this year is in Hong Kong and Henan. It includes a plenary session with Professor David Lung of the University of Hong Kong's Department of Architecture, expert on built heritage. There will also be discussions on Chinese history and customs, visits to museums and sites of cultural interest such as the ancient Chinese capital Luoyang, the World Heritage Longmen grottoes and the Buddhist Shao Lin Temple.

Professor David Lung, speaking at the launch of Dragon 100, commented on the importance of caring for heritage:

What we do today affects the environment of tomorrow. Borrowing from the concept of sustainability, we don't want this generation to deprive the next of its heritage. Heritage conservation is about the interpretation of our historical past, based on the values of today, and the will to conserve for the benefit of future generations.
