2018 Uganda Conference on the Family at the Uganda Christian University, May 21 -22
Uganda Christian University is organizing a Conference on the Family scheduled for May 21-22, 2018 at its campus in Mukono, Kampala.
The theme is “THE FAMILY IN THE 21ST CENTURY: STRONG? IN CRISIS? CHANGING? What is the future of this foundational unit of life in community and nation?”
From the announcement of the organizing committee: “This conference will celebrate and affirm the declaration of 2017 & 2018 as the Year of the Family in Uganda (so designated by both the government and Anglican Church of Uganda). It is also strategically well-timed to continue and strengthen the spirit of the International Day of Families. It comes closely (just 6 days!) on the heels of the International Day of Families on May 15.”
Dr. John Senyoni, Vice Chancellor (President) Uganda Christian University
“The Conference is designed to provide an ideal opportunity for a good mix of key societal delegates – religious, political and governmental, non-governmental, and cultural leaders, researchers/educators, etc. – to come and reason together about the situation of the family (past, present & future) with focus on the African family, while drawing lessons from other cultures and histories. It will be an exciting and yet humbling time, an ideal opportunity, to listen, share, discuss and learn. More than 300 delegates are expected to attend. “
