QUZHOU, China, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The current “traditional cultural education” not only shoulders a special mission of the times, but also faces breakthroughs and innovations. Shimao keenly perceives that only by deepening and re-mining traditional Chinese culture, and trying to invent a new educational concept and model to make it integrated into the times and life, can we truly cultivate cultural perception as well as inheriting sense of mission among the young generation, to blaze a path for cultural education and reshape the cultural confidence, and then carry it forward.

This first launch demonstrated Shimao’s innovation and exploration in education for the inheritance and development of intangible cultural heritage, and pointed out the direction for industry and education counterparts through the precise landing of “education plus public welfare”, calling on all sectors of society to participate in.
Innovative research builds a bridge for international cultural communication
In 2019, Shimao Photosynthetic Education Community established a collaboration team composed of experts, industrial designers, and executive editors, which focus on intangible culture inheritance projects with “local characteristics, artistic achievements, and scientific value”, which allow them to communicate in person with inheritors, and eventually formed the first 26-volume standardized courses, “Intangible Cultural Heritage Stories”.
