Introduction

Silk Road & Young Dreams, a youth-oriented cultural exchange project along the Silk Road, is jointly hosted by Silk Road CitiesAlliance, China Friendship Foundation for Peace and Development, Beijing Belt and Road Cooperative Community and Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies of Renmin University of China.

Theme of the 3rd Silk Road & Young Dreams

Health: Youth Dream, Social Responsibility

Health is a common pursuit of humankind, and also the eternal theme resonating with people along the Silk Road throughout history. The health issues, regardless of the Public Health Emergency of International Concern such as Ebola epidemic, Zika epidemic and the novel corona virus outbreak, or researches on prevention and treatment of chronic diseases of the AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, heart disease, diabetes and others, highly draw the public attention. People from different nations and culture have never stopped the exploration of the science of life and health.

Health cooperation carries the aspirations of people for a healthy life and is also an important part of the “Belt and Road” construction. In June 2016, President Xi proposed to work together on building a “Healthy Silk Road”, to deepen international health cooperation, and to improve the welfare of the public. In the past four years, with the joint efforts of the Silk Road countries, “Belt and Road” health cooperation has yielded fruitful results, and effectively promoted the development of global health services.

The 3rd Silk Road & Young Dreams takes “health” as its theme, and encourages the young people to elaborate the understanding, researches, observation, and suggestions on “healthy food, healthy life, healthy psychology, healthy society, healthy environment, public health emergency mechanism, health cooperation on the Belt and Road”, so as to show the responsibility of youth in participating in global health governance.
