The previous 12 chapters investigate life and moral education (LME) in a very thorough way from different perspectives, knowledge domains, and contexts. Indeed, although some commonalities such as the influence of Confucianism can be found, the LME of each society in the Greater China region varies from one to another. This chapter aims to conclude previous chapters and draw out summative implications with discussion on three broad dimensions: philosophical dimension, child-centred developmental dimension, and cognitive-affective and values based dimension. In an ever-changing new era, the development and implementation of LME may face various arising challenges and dilemmas. This chapter discusses LME with a future vision, focusing on the trends of 21st century learning, AI, and globalisation. Lastly, the concept of “common good” is introduced as a high-order value in LME.
