Vice Chairman Nathanael Kent’s Message

Ever since I first encountered the OPGC in 2013, I have been impressed by its game-changing liberal thinking, and the passion and motivation of the people behind that. I am now proud to call these same people my colleagues and friends. Professor Zhang Shaohua’s tireless efforts and insightful writings have taken OPGC to great heights, promoting and spreading the values of understanding, tolerance, compassion, forgiveness and kindness. This is especially important in our current world where these are needed more than ever in my lifetime. The Fourth Congress in Moscow made great contributions towards the goal of a cleaner and greener planet, and I have every faith that in Nairobi we will do likewise for culture.
