The Most Good You Can Do: Peter Singer on Living Ethically

22 April 2015

Thank you for making the lecture with Peter Singer such a success. We were delighted to have a full house and to hear such excellent questions from a wide range of audience members.

The Festival would like to take this opportunity to thank the University of Hong Kong for their sponsorship of this event. Peter Singer is in Hong Kong under the auspices of the University’s Faculty of the Arts and its Second Century Lecture Series, and the Festival is grateful to the University for their support.
