The first meeting of the Policy Making Council of the Int`l Headquarters of commemoration of Abu Ali Sina, known in the West as Avicenna took place on Saturday, July 16, 2023 in the Mirror Hall of the Society for the Appreciation of Cultural Works and Dignitaries (SACWD) with the presence of a large number of representatives of cultural institutions of the country.
In his opening remarks, Mahmood Shalooei, Head of the SACWD, said: “Iranian elites are usually known to scholars and intellectuals, but what is important is that other social classes including youth should understand and appreciate the thoughts and worldview of renowned scholars.”
He further added: “Many of Iranian valuable cultural and literary heritages have not yet been translated or written in a simple language, or have not been presented to the youth through new artistic tools. Therefore, the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and the SACWD while developing the commemorations of the dignitaries are seeking to present their great heritages to the public, especially the young generation, in a simple language.” 
Referring to the activities of the Abu Ali Sina Commemoration Headquarters in the SACWD, the adviser to the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance stated: “The aim of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, The Society and other institutions cooperating with the Abu Ali Sina Commemoration Headquarters is to commemorate this Iranian preeminent philosopher and physician in Iran and beyond.”
Ayatollah Ghiasoddin Taha-Mohammadi, the head of Abu Ali Sina Cultural and Scientific Foundation, also said in the meeting: “SACWD is the main responsible body for honoring the great philosophers like Abu Ali Sina and promoting their valuable heritages in Iran.”
He emphasized: “Just as the preservation and safeguarding Iran's great cultural and religious heritage is an important responsibility, it is also necessary to transfer this heritage to the young generation, and we hope that the Society will prioritize this important task.”
In his turn, Mahdi Vije, the Director General of Culture and Islamic Guidance of Hamedan province, while presenting a report on the activities of the department last year regarding the commemoration of Abu Ali Sina in Hamedan, said: “This year, various programs have been implemented among them are global registration of ancient Hegmataneh in west-central Hamedan province concurrent with Iran`s commemoration of national day of Avicenna, holing national festival of Persian (Sinavi) medicine, the performance of Abu Ali Sina`s symphony, and honoring Abu Ali Sina scholars from Iran and the world.
During the meeting, President of ECO Cultural Institute, Director General of Foreign Media Department of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, Najafqoli Habibi, the lecturer of Islamic philosophy and the editor of Avicenna's works, Insha-Allah Rahmati, Iranian philosopher and a member of the Scientific Advisory Council of the Society, Manouchehr Sadeghi Saha, professor and researcher of Islamic wisdom and mysticism, Kianoosh Kiani, member of the Scientific Advisory Council of the Society, Rector of Bu Ali Sina University of Hamedan and representatives from the Academy of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, Hamedan Municipality and the National Commission of UNESCO discussed and exchanged views on the ways to enhance cooperation.
