Forum on Confucius culture opens in east China
A forum on Confucius culture opened Sunday in the city of Qufu, east China's Shandong Province, the birthplace of the Chinese sage.
The Sixth Nishan Forum on World Civilizations drew 150 scholars from home and abroad, more than 40 of whom attended the online forum due to the COVID-19 epidemic, to discuss the ancient wisdom of Confucianism and explore the bright future of human beings.
The forum coincided with the 2020 China (Qufu) International Confucius Cultural Festival.
High-level dialogue, two themed speeches and a series of forums will be held during the two-day event.
"We will jointly explore ways to integrate all kinds of civilizations to contribute wisdom and build a community with a shared future for humankind," said Jin Nuo, president of Nishan International Center for Confucian Studies.
Confucius (551-479 B.C.), an educator and thinker, has influenced countless generations of Chinese society.
