Location: Nanchong (China)
Date: 2.–3.1.2020
Deadline: 30.8.2019


Peace, development, equity, justice, democracy and freedom are common
values of humankind and lofty goals of the United Nations. However,
the goals are far from being achieved; we still have to strive for
them. Eastern and Western countries have different cultural
traditions, while they are compatible as the two cultural traditions
can be integrated, enriched and complemented. In the era of
globalization, Eastern and Western, Northern and Southern countries
should learn from each other, especially in terms of cultural
traditions and values. We all live in one world and have common
concerns about our society and the future of humanity. In order to
avoid wars, conflicts, and violence, we need to build a new type of
international relations featuring win-win cooperation and a community
of shared future for our common humanity.

Some topics of this conference are listed below: 

1. Common values of all human beings
2. Eastern and Western cultural traditions
3. Multicultural identity in the era of globalization
4. Contemporary Chinese Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era
5. Community with shared future for mankind
