Formally launched in 1997, Civitas Asia or CivAsia are annual conferences in education and culture that are anchored together by an arching theme: civilization is constituted by reasoned conversation. Civilization cannot exist, much less develop, without meaningful, creative, and managed communication—without intelligent or reasoned conversation.
The objectives of CivAsia are:
(1) to help bridge the Asia-Pacific community;
(2) to assert the role of the academe in development; and
(3) to sustain and nurture the leaders of the Asia-Pacific community.
Registration fee is PhP 1,500 inclusive of meals and conference materials. Delegates consisting of five members may also avail of the group rate PhP 7,000 inclusive of meals and conference materials.
Deadline of registration is on November 5, 2014 (Wednesday).
