Sunday, 2.3.2008

China plans to build “cultural symbolic city” to revive Confucianism “China plans to spend billions of dollars to build a cultural symbolic city (中华文化标志城) in its eastern province of Shandong, home to ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius, to revive traditional cultural values including Confucianism … ‘The city will exhibit and commemorate the long-honored Chinese values, such as refining personal morality, cherishing peace and harmony, and filial piety. Ideally, it shall be the spiritual home for the whole nation.’ Construction is expected to start before 2010.” (Xinhua). Vgl. 中华文化标志城向全球公开征集创意规划方案 (Xinhua).
