From November 8th to 10th, 2019, The 1st China Conservation Area for Dark and Starry Sky Conference themed “Beautiful China Needs Beautiful Stars” will be held in Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province.

 

The conference is co-sponsored by China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF), Yancheng Teachers College, and China Dark and Starry Sky Conservation Area ? Yeludang. China Dark and Starry Sky Conservation Areas at Ngari, Nagqu, Taihang, and Geyuan are co-organizers and jointly participate in the support.

 

The control of light pollution and environmental protection at night is a subject of universal concern in the international community. The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put forward the strategic goal of building a beautiful China. The starry sky is not only a profound natural beauty but also a natural accomplishment formed by the national spirit. The history and culture that human beings have looked up to the starry sky for thousands of years should not be lost in our generation.

 

With the continuous development of the city, nightscape lighting decoration seems to be an indispensable component of the city construction. The effect of nightscape lighting decoration has become a criterion of the degree of development of the city. However, the city lighting not only lights up the road and decorates the city, but also brings new problems to light pollution.

 

President Xi Jinping pointed out that, “we must maintain the overall balance of the earth’s ecology, so that our descendants can enjoy rich material wealth, and can be able to enjoy the starry sky, be able to see the beautiful hills and the pretty flowers.” Therefore, beautiful China needs a beautiful starry sky. In order to jointly promote the construction and development of beautiful China, we should promote the construction and development of “China Conservation Area for Dark and Starry Sky”, give full play to the value and role of “China Conservation Area for Dark and Starry Sky” in participating in the construction of ecological civilization and the great strategy of “building a community of shared future for mankind”, and mobilize local governments, public welfare organizations, experts, scholars, enterprises and other social forces to participate together. It is inevitable for the development of the new era to make contributions to the construction of ecological civilization and the construction of beautiful China with practical actions.

 

We hope that through this conference, we can integrate resources and forces from all walks of life to explore an effective way to form a sound development of China’s dark sky protection. Promoting the improvement of the cooperation and exchange mode of the conservation areas, discussing the construction and development direction of the "China Conservation Area for Dark and Starry Sky”, and making plans for better promoting the work of dark sky conservation areas. Also, it is hoped that we can keep improving the operation rules of star protection in China, and strengthen communication and dialogue with the government, academic research institutions, and the public. We will promote the scientific and orderly development of light pollution prevention and control and the protection of the dark sky, make suggestions for the local economic and social development, and make contributions to the construction of ecological civilization and beautiful China with practical actions.

 

We sincerely hope that all sectors of society will pay more attention to and support this conference to achieve fruitful results and work together for the development of the new ecological era.
