It may seem, at first hand, contradictory but preservation of old buildings can ensure a city's future. Bringing the past to life by restoring structures from yesterday displays a confidence in tomorrow.

Jinan, capital city of Shandong province, understands this.

As does the National Cultural Heritage Administration. Last year, it released a document which encourages social organizations, such as charities and interest groups, to participate more in the preservation and use of historical buildings.

The statement suggested that social organizations could develop these heritage sites into public venues such as museums, cultural centers, exhibition and leisure venues such as homestays, inns and tea houses through various ways, including joining hands with the local government.
