During the keynote speech session, seven invited guests delivered speeches on "rural revitalization and balanced development". WANG Ming, Professor of the School of Public Policy & Management, Tsinghua University and Director of Institute for Philanthropy Tsinghua University, presided over the seminar.
In the development process of rural revitalization, the participation of social forces including enterprises, social organizations and volunteers is one of the characteristics and advantages of China. Social forces have always played a very important role in both the past poverty alleviation and the current stage of effectively linking the achievements of poverty alleviation with rural revitalization. On the afternoon of the same day, DENG Guosheng, Professor and Vice President of the School of Public Policy & Management, Tsinghua University and Director of the Center for Social Innovation and Rural Revitalization, presided over the seminar as the moderator on the topic of "Social Forces and Rural Revitalization" and invited six guests to share the Chinese experience and solutions of social forces in rural revitalization.
Rural revitalization is not only an important strategy for China to reach its 2030 vision, but also an important global issue. Since the emergence of international assistance and development in the 1960s, a large number of philanthropic organizations around the world have devoted themselves to rural development and accumulated rich experience in the process. What are the international experiences of philanthropic efforts to promote rural development worldwide? What are the experiences of Chinese charities that can be shared with the world? In the following seminar, 10 guests shared their views on the theme of "International Experience and Cooperation in Rural Revitalization", which was moderated by LAN Yuxin, Associate Professor of the School of Public Policy & Management, Tsinghua University and Assistant Director of the Institute for Philanthropy Tsinghua University.
