I. Thematic Interpretation
Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered in a speech at the UN headquarters in Geneva on January 18, 2017, “Only one Earth in the universe, and humankind shares a same home” which called for a common community of human destiny. He pointed out: "Human beings are in a period of major development, major changes, and major adjustments. The world is undergoing multi-polarization, economic globalization is developing in depth, and social information and cultural diversity are continuing to advance. A new round of scientific and technological revolutions and industrial revolutions are growing. Interconnected and interdependent with each other, countries in the world share common destiny. The rise of peace forces far exceeds the growth of war factors, and the trend of peace, development, cooperation, and mutual benefit has become stronger. At the same time, humanity is also facing an endless stream of challenges. In an era of increasing risk, sluggish world economy, lingering financial crisis and increasingly prominent development gap, countries are appealing to arms from time to time. The Cold War mentality and power politics are lingering. Non-traditional security threats such as terrorism, refugee crises, major infectious diseases, and climate change problems continue to spread.” How to grasp the world trend, seize the opportunity of peace and development, and deal with various risks and challenges remain an era issue facing all humanity.
"Strengthening the global governance to promote the reform of the global governance system," and "building a community of human destiny to achieve shared benefits" are not only China's plans but also the expectation of the people of the world. The international community should make efforts in areas such as partnerships, security patterns, economic development, cultural exchanges, and ecological construction. Adhere to dialogues and consultations to build a world of lasting peace; adhere to co-construction and sharing to build a world enjoyed universal safety; adhere to win-win cooperation to build a common and prosperous world; insist on exchanges and mutual understanding to build an open and inclusive world; Adhere to green and low-carbon development to build a clean and beautiful world.
Building a community of human destiny is a good goal that all peoples in the world can work together to achieve. We look forward to conducting extensive and in-depth discussions with scholars at home and abroad, representatives of governments of various countries, and representatives of global organizations around the world on "human destiny community and global governance," and contributing wisdom to the great process of building a community of human destiny. The main topics of this forum are as follows:
1. Current research on new trends and new features of globalization;
2. Research on the counter-globalization trends and new challenges in global governance;
3. Changes in global governance and changes in the global governance system;

5. Construction of human destiny community and the study of global governance modernization.

The East Lake Forum on Global Governance is held at East lake Hotel in Wuhan, Hubei Province. Hubei Province is located in central China, in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, north of Dongting Lake. Hence the name of Hubei refers to the north of lake in China. Hubei Province located in the center of China is known as the “the pivot of Nine Provinces”; Jianghan Plain is located in the central part of Hubei Province and is known as the “land of fish and rice”; Hubei wins the reputation for “the province with thousands of lakes” for its rich water resources. Wuhan is the capital city of Hubei Province and the largest city in central China. The Yangtze River and Han River pass through the city and divide Wuhan into Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang towns, hence the name “Jiangcheng”; Wuhan is known as “the city of hundreds of lakes” and has the world’s largest city lake—East Lake. East Lake Hotel, the site of this forum, is known as the "Hubei State Guesthouse” and is located on the scenic East Lake where Chairman Mao Zedong worked and lived here for a long time.
