For budget reasons, we had to first focus on a few essential short term objectives, while the general orientation is much wider. We are already preparing the way to achieve the middle and long term objectives.
Short term objectives
Translating the Charter into Chinese, with the purpose to "convey its content and meaning in a way suitable to Chinese cultural context" and "transmit the main common ideas into a whole range of texts in local languages produced in consultation with local groups". Thus to develop a Chinese adapted version of the Charter.
Conducting reinterpretation of the context of the Charter from a Chinese perspective concerning its culture, values, tradition, and current challenges.
Producing printed and other materials for the general public.
Middle and long term objectives
Getting the Chinese public full aware of the key concepts, core principles, and framework of the Charter.
Providing opportunities for people to involve in international communication and exchanges that related to the Charter.
