Dear friends from Confucius Institutes worldwide,
In 2004, Chinese institutions and their overseas counterparts began to jointly establish Confucius Institutes based on the principles of mutual respect, friendly negotiation, equality, and mutual benefit.
Looking back on the past 20 years, the Confucius Institute has been connecting cultures and hearts by language. With a dedication to Chinese language teaching, the Confucius Institute built platforms for cultural exchange and mutual learning to promote understanding and friendship among the people of different countries.
Entering the year 2024, the Confucius Institute is about to have its 20th birthday. We would like to invite everyone to join us in celebrating the 2024 Confucius Institute Day on the theme of At 20th, the Confucius Institute is in its prime.
All Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms will welcome students, teachers, heads of schools, alumni, and local communities with open arms to participate in our academic seminars, expert lectures, artistic performances, themed exhibitions, cultural experience activities, film festivals, summer camps and so on to share our joy of Confucius Institute's 20th birthday.
In 2024, every day will be the 2024 Confucius Institute Day as we will make 2024 a celebration year for the 20th anniversary of the Confucius Institute.
Those who are benevolent feel no worries, those who are wise feel no puzzlement, and those who are brave feel no fears at all. Dear friends of our big Confucius Institute family, let us actively begin to spread and sow the seeds of communication, understanding, harmony, and friendship every single day to wish Confucius Institute a happy 20th birthday!
