> World Acupuncture Day : house of UNESCO, 15th of November 2018

Summary

This World Acupuncture Day, which took place in the symbolic place of the UNESCO Centre in Paris, was rich in teachings about the history of acupuncture in China, as well as in the various Asian and European countries, in the USA and South America; It was interesting to hear how its development , based on tradition, has been enriched by modern research and systematization techniques ("evidence based medicine"). This development has led to partnership work between WFAS and WHO over the past thirty years and the inclusion of Acupuncture in UNESCO's intangible heritage of humanity in 2010.

It was also an opportunity to see how the development of acupuncture in the world has brought together different cultures around multiple associations for a common effort to recognize acupuncture as a treasure of medicine. More than 1400 people, acupuncturists or not and representing 49 countries, came to listen to the speakers from all over the world.

For the French, a very important first step has been taken to bring together doctors  and non-doctors acupuncturists. Although there is still a lot to do, a path is being paved.

Acupuncture Without Borders had the opportunity to present its action in the world which was well received. There is a vast amount of work to be done in developing countries, which were not represented at this congress, and for which a development of acupuncture could provide a solution (among other things, of course) to the health problems they encounter. Acupuncture is a medicine not only to treat disease but above all to take care of Health for Humanity, as formulated by Professor Liu Bao-Yan of WFAS.

> WuJi, Calendrier perpétu’elles

5 TCM students had the very good and original idea of a perpetual calendar illustrated by pictures of themselves as a support of the symbolic  5 éléments Earth, Fire, Metal, Water, and Wood. The high level of creativity of this joyfull group and the artistic reality of their work made a real succes of this original : « WuJi, Perpetual Calendar ».

On the 9th of November 2015, these 5 artists gave AWB-I all the benefit of the sales and we would like to assure them of our sincere gratitude. This gift has helped financing AWB missions in 2016.
