Taking advantage of the special atmosphere of Qingming Festival, the forum discusses various topics such as "death counseling", "death care" and "medical and funeral integration", in order to constantly break the taboo context and thinking concerning death, enrich the spiritual world of Chinese people, and make life and death peaceful and happy. So far, the forum has been held for four times, with a total of more than 1,000 people participating in the forum in person, and the number of online live viewers has reached more than 100,000. In the future, the Peking University Qingming Forum will continue to be held with the support of all sectors of society, and will continue to operate across circles, regions and disciplines.
