More than 200 former laureates and partnership parties participated.



The Forum was committed to becoming the first incubator for scientific innovation in heritage sites. As an extension and upgrade of the collaborative eco-network of the "Global Awards for World Heritage Education Innovative Cases", the forum convened the most cutting-edge and representative world heritage creators & innovators and their latest practice and exploration. Meanwhile, the forum has made systematic innovations in its mode, innovatively adopting the multi-dimensional interactive structure of "Brainstorming + Immersion Art + Heritage Scenarios", which organically integrated the sharing of innovative cases, the award ceremony, interactive performances and the heritage scene, providing the best creative atmosphere for the cross-boundary exchanges of all parties, and creating the one-stop professional exchange platform, the most in-depth and wide-ranging, for cross-boundary mode innovation of domestic heritage sites.



The forum launched the Global Case Awards Incubation Cooperation Project, aiming to carry out a number of globally leading and exemplary cross-border cooperation projects to promote the development of science and innovation at heritage sites, including the first phase of the China-Mexico Heritage Cities South-South Cooperation Project, and the Domestic Heritage Volunteer Cooperation Network, among others. After the completion of the thematic sub-forums, and with the World Heritage Creative Concerto performed by Music Museum of Xinghai Conservatory of Music, Nanyin, and Yungang Dance, Dr Li Xin and all the participants jointly initiated the establishment of the "World Heritage Creative & Innovator Alliance", and the whole forum reached a climax and came to a successful end.



The Spatial Structure of the Forum

With the goal of building China's first multi-scene, immersive and all-interactive forum on the theme of scientific innovation of heritage, the forum highlighted the in-depth spatial and temporal fusion and interaction between heritage scenes and innovators, and adopted the holistic structure of "introduction, elucidation, transition, and convergence", which gradually unfolded the professional sections in the heritage scenes, and provided not only an extremely academic and professional theme forum, but also an optimal creative atmosphere for in-depth communication among the participants. This not only brought all participants a professional theme forum with rich academic content, but also provided the best creative atmosphere for in-depth communication among each other.



This article focuses on the establishment of the alliance, the immersive case show and other structural innovations, the keynote and the reports of the sub-forums will be published in a separate article, please look forward to it.
