The 1st Taishan International Cultural Forum kicked off in Tai’an, east China’s Shandong Province on Oct. 23, 2019. More than 40 experts at home and abroad gathered at the foot of Mount Tai for an in-depth discussion on how to build a community with shared future for mankind, promote exchanges and mutual learning among civilizations, and explore wisdom and solutions to global issues.

“Cultural exchange is an important impetus for human civilization and world peace and development. At present, the world development is facing upheaval unprecedented in a century. To tackle such common challenges and move towards a better future, we need both the economic and technological development and the strength of culture and civilization,” said Zhang Tao, vice secretary of the CPC Tai’an Municipal Committee and mayor of Tai’an City. The first Taishan International Cultural Forum is held to make full the use of Mount Tai, one of treasures of Chinese culture, to build a dialogue platform to showcase Chinese culture, tell Chinese story and spread Chinese voice, so as to promote the exchange and integration, and mutual learning and common prosperity of Taishan culture, Chinese culture and world culture.

“Mount Tai, one of the most important symbols of the Chinese nation, has played an inestimable role in the cohesion of the Chinese nation. From the historical point of view, Mount Tai was reserved by the people as early as the pre-Qin period. Since Qin and Han dynasties, no matter in the Central China or the adjacent regions, most of the people worshiped Taishan culture. This kind of worship contains the spiritual pursuit of the unity of human and nature, people-centered thought and rule of virtue of the Chinese nation,” said Bu Xianqun, director of the CASS Institute of Ancient History.

The forum is another exploration and promotion of Taishan culture. From the perspective of Chinese culture, it is of great significance to the inheritance of Taishan culture.

Taishan International Cultural Forum, Taishan Forum for short, is an international high-end cultural forum approved by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Two parallel forums will be held during the event.
