COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “ANNIVERSARIES - EVENTS” (The Ancient Civilizations Forum – Athens 2017)
Παρασκευή, 21 Απριλίου 2017

 

 

On 24 April 2017, the historic first Ministerial Conference of the states of the Ancient Civilizations Forum, in which ten countries are participating, will be held in Athens.

Apart from Greece, the other countries taking part in the initiative are China, Bolivia, Egypt, India, Iraq, Iran, Italy, Mexico and Peru. They are ten modern-day states whose territories saw the flourishing of the great ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome and Persia, the civilizations of the Mayans, the Incas, the Aztecs, the Indus Valley and Mesopotamia, and, of course, the Chinese and ancient Greek civilizations.

 The Ancient Civilizations Forum aims at joint actions for better cooperation in promoting the cultural heritage of the participants to benefit their peoples and all humanity. It will also examine ways in which international cultural cooperation can function as a factor for economic development.

  The Forum’s logo is plain, simple, and rich in symbolism. Its background is a globe, the home of all civilizations and all humanity. A line on it joins the stars of the ten civilizations to form a constellation. All ancient civilizations studied the stars as they attempted to understand measure, predict and worship. Looking at the sky, they also looked to the future, and the logo reflects both a bridging of civilizations and the bridging of the past with the present
