China Foundation for Cultural Heritage Conservation and Guangming Daily co-hosted China's first nation-level forum on social efforts in cultural heritage protection in Beijing on Nov 3.

Gu Yucai, deputy director of the State Administration of Cultural Heritage, said on the forum that the administration will refer to more nongovernment efforts in the future, particularly in cultural relic restoration, museum work and public service.

Volunteers will be better organized to patrol around cultural heritage sites and relevant supervision work to create the foundation for a good atmosphere for more public participation.

There are 760,000 unmovable cultural heritage sites around China, which makes it difficult to fully rely on government to preserve them.

And, some successful experiences were shared at the forum, including adoption of traditional residence in Huangshan, Anhui province; an organization on old Western villa protection launched by Fuzhou citizens in Fujian province; and individuals' efforts building up database of the Great Wall.
