作者:黄雨瑄、梁好、周琛佶

“人类的集体文化遗产不仅包括许多人都听说过的重要遗址,还包括众多独特的少数民族文化。在下个世纪,世界上 50% 到 90%的语言都将消亡,其中大部分都是少数民族语言。如果现在不采取行动,我们的子孙后代将再也无缘看到世界文化的多样性。”来自少数群体权利国际组织(Minority Group International)的政策和传播总监索德伯格强调说。

在世界范围内,少数民族群体占全球总人口的6.2%。这里所指的少数民族群体是某地区最初定居的族群,也被称作“原住民”。他们是世界文化多样性的重要组成部分。

It has experienced rapid social and economic growth that once allowed Pingxiang to become a prosperous city during the mid-20th century. In the 1950s, Pingxiang exploited its mining resources to the largest extent while turning the city into a leading iron, steel, chemical, and machinery industry.
