Mr. Li Ruohong said, “Education not only symbolizes the progress of civilization, but also reflects the comprehensive national power. After 40 years of reform and opening up, China’s economic status and power of political discourse has attracted worldwide attention. Now the international community is paying attention to our educational and social reform, and the approaches we take in improving our basic and social education. To this end, I had put forward the Peace+1 proposal (including Peace + Education) in the UN headquarters and launched and developed the Interactive Atlas of Cultural Interactions along the Silk Roads project together with UNESCO in the UN’s 193 member states. The project is well planed, pragmatic and applicable. It is regarded by Mr. Guterres, the Secretary General of the UN, as a contribution to the world”. Li also shared his experience in conducting social and life-long education, his understanding of Mr. Tao Xingzhi’s educational thought “life is education, society serves as a school”, approaches of connecting traditional view of time and space with modern innovation, and of combining theory with practice to develop practical and sustainable intermediate. He also talked about striking a balance between nations and regions that have different social systems, religions, cultures, and values and turning the understanding of such balance into pragmatic policies for global and regional governance, and offering Chinese approaches in improving international order. Li, in the end, hoped that people presenting in the forum could challenge themselves, face the future, and demonstrate Chinese wisdoms and China’s power in attracting talents.
