May 18, 2024 marks the 48th International Museum Day, and this year's theme is "Museums Committed to Education and Research". Tianzhushan Global Geopark carried out a series of activities to build a bridge between the museum and the public.

On May 17, Tianzhushan Global Geopark and Tianzhushan Tourism School jointly held the second "Little Docents" competition, and 18 students entered the finals. They gave their own unique explanations on the geological formation, the biodiversity, the history and profound culture of Tianzhushan. The contestants were full of emotion, and the colorful commentary made the audience feel immersive. After fierce competition, 10 outstanding docents were selected into the volunteer service team of little docents of Tianzhushan Geopark Museum.

This "Little Docent" activity not only cultivated the children's humanistic quality and expression ability, but also was a "relay run" to convey the spirit of volunteerism and cultivate museum volunteers, which deepened the teenagers' awareness and love for their hometown culture, and established cultural self-confidence and sense of responsibility.

On May 18, the unveiling ceremony of Qiuzhi three-star geo-cultural village and the science popularization activities were held by Doumu Town in Tianzhushan Global Geopark.

The event introduced the construction of Qiuzhi Geo-Cultural Village in the past three years, read out the "Letter on Organizing and Carrying out the Geo-Cultural Village (Town) Awarding Work" of the Geological Society of China, and held the unveiling ceremony of the three-star geo-cultural village. After the unveiling ceremony, participants went to the Yangxiaowu fossil site to carry out popular science activities and disseminate geoscience knowledge.

Qiuzhi Village is an important scientific investigation area in the southern part of Tianzhushan Global Geopark. In recent years, in accordance with the basic requirements of "geology as the foundation, culture as the soul, integration as the key, and benefiting the people as the foundation", through the in-depth excavation of the "geology +" model, Qiuzhi village has focused on three aspects: science education, industrial construction, and eco-tourism to shape new villages, develop new industries, and create new lives. In 2023, it was approved as a geological science education base in Anhui Province, and in 2024, it was selected into the list of rural revitalization demonstration villages in Anhui Province, and it has been successfully approved as the only three-star geo-cultural village in Anqing City assessed by the Geological Society of China.
