The University of Macau (UM) recently held the second forum of thinkers in Macao. The event was co-organised by UM’s Centre for Chinese History and Culture (CCHC) and the editorial team of South China Quarterly. During the event, participants discussed the coexistence of different civilisations and its importance to Macao as well as Chinese and western cultures.
During the forum, Vice Rector (Student Affairs) Billy So said that each civilisation is a vehicle for achieving coexistence and different civilisations are connected to one another through communication. He expressed hope that participants in the forum would make contributions to the coexistence of different civilisations through exploring Chinese and western wisdom.
Officiating guests at the opening ceremony included Billy So, Zhu Shoutong, interim director of the CCHC; Tian Weiping, editor-in-chief of South China Quarterly; as well as experts and scholars from various institutions, including Peking University, Tsinghua University, Beijing Normal University, Capital Normal University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, East China Normal University, Shanghai Normal University, Nanjing University, Sun Yat-sen University, Hunan University, Shenzhen University, and the Macau University of Science and Technology.
