#Jesuits: a platform for cultural dialogue with #China is born
Two important institutions of the Society of Jesus, #GeorgetownUniversity (Washington, D.C.) and La Civiltà Cattolica (Rome) announce the birth of a new platform for cultural dialogue with China.
The "China Forum for the dialogue of civilizations" will be a "platform open to the meeting between Chinese intellectuals and colleagues of international origin to discuss common challenges between culture, technology and global society". The first three topics of discussion of the Forum are: the global ecological crisis; the ethics of artificial intelligence; and humanistic education for a global era.
The "China Forum" will host expert seminars and high-level public events in major global cities, including Rome, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and #Beijing. "We have a great desire to deepen dialogue on a range of critical issues for today's world," said Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia. "Today the geopolitical and cultural challenges make it essential to deepen the meeting with China on issues related to our common home, the world and its harmony", said the director of La Civiltà Cattolica, father Antonio Spadaro.
