The 22nd. annual conference of the Association for Moral Education 
highlights the interconnectedness between researcher and practitioner 
in the urgent task of developing responsible citizens.  Modern 
principles of democracy can be fulfilled only when individuals embrace 
their personal and societal obligations.

Through collaboration, researchers and practitioners can promote this 
goal more effectively. This year's conference provides an opportunity 
for researchers and practitioners to dialogue and explore ways of 
actively cooperating.

While at the conference, we invite you to enjoy Ottawa, the most 
beautiful city in North America, with its world-class museums, art 
gallery, parks, scenic drives, restaurants and hospitality.
