Since the beginning of 2020, COVID-19 has been raging across the entire globe, and the people all around the world has been struggling to fight against it, supporting each other and praying for each other. During the long live-or-death combat, the medical staff sacrifice themselves to save others’ lives and Chinese people from around the world unite together to help with each other. Their deeds bring boundless love to every corner of the world.
What is it that holds us all together? It is the common mission shared by the people of the entire world in the fight against the pandemic that transcends the borders of countries and enables us to rush to each other’s assistance in spite of the barriers of mountains and oceans.
What is it that gives us tremendous confidence? It is the common responsibility shared by all the countries that make us work together to develop vaccines, share experiences and provide mutual assistance.
In the face of the pandemic, only working together and cooperating with each other is the right choice.The online free course “Cloud Classroom of Consensus” offered specially by The Academy of Chinese Culture aims at providing in-depth analyses over topics including China’s responsibilities, China’s stories and building a community with a shared future for mankind in the fight against the COVID-19 . The Classroom is a brand-new platform for sharing knowledge via media convergence.
The three courses we have recorded this time include “ Building a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind from the Perspective of COVID-19 (Part A and B)” by Professor Yufan Zhu, “An Institutional Comparison Between China and the West on Their Different Anti-pandemic Models and the Cultural Logics Behind (Part A and B)” by Professor Mingxia Sun," China’s Big Power Responsibility as Highlighted by COVID-19 Pandemic Prevention and Control (Part A, B and C)” by Professor Guosheng Gao. There are altogether seven episodes of around 75 minutes. As the young teachers in the Academy of Chinese Culture, the lecturers themselves are working hard in building A Community with a Shared Future for Mankind and they are also the interpreters of “Culture Confidence”. Being the main speakers in the first season of the “Cloud Classroom of Consensus of the Academy of Chinese Culture”, they will draw on their expertise and with their own individualistic styles take us through a feast of knowledge in their respective fields.
