Participants at the forum acknowledged the paramount importance and fundamental role of harmony between man and nature for Chinese-style modernization. It embodies the wisdom of Chinese civilization in nurturing a sustainable relationship between humans and the environment. Guided by the principles of sustainable development, China is actively fostering the development of a beautiful China and ecological civilization through extensive international exchanges and cooperation. China is eager to collaborate with nations worldwide in building a shared community, with a steadfast commitment to achieving "harmony between man and nature" by 2050.

During the keynote speech session, esteemed domestic and foreign guests delivered notable addresses. Sergio Cabrera, Colombian Ambassador to China, emphasized the rich biodiversity shared by Colombia and China and expressed the intention to enhance explorations and cooperation in biodiversity conservation. Ambassador Cabrera also invited all countries to join the Like-Minded Megadiverse Countries (LMMC) promoted by the Colombian government.

As part of the efforts to advance global ecological civilization construction and create a clean and beautiful world, the Erhai Forum unveiled the Erhai Initiative, aiming to collectively promote the harmony between man and nature. Emphasizing that “lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets”, it calls for the coordinated and systematic management of mountains, rivers, forests, fields, lakes, grass and sand. Additionally, the Erhai Initiative seeks to promote the green transformation of development methods and lifestyles while inviting global collaboration in the pursuit of a sustainable path to global ecological civilization development.
