The visiting group was comprised of representatives from the national campaign Looking for the Most Beautiful Family which was launched by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF).
The tour, under the joint organization of Department of Family and Children's Affairs of the ACWF and China Women's News, was designed to guide women and their family members in following the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Households across the province should contribute efforts in accomplishing family goals that are part of the force for realizing the "Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation," and greeting the upcoming 19th CPC National Congress, said organizers.
Representatives shared their respective family stories via pictures, videos and lectures.
Sun Zongzhen, one of them, has continued caring for her parents-in-law from her first marriage even after she became a widower and found a new husband.
Shandong awarded a total of 73 households during the national campaign, of which three took part in the lectures.
Local women's federations took advantage of folk traditions and festivals in promoting the campaign across the province. They also organized various activities on such topics as reading, family education and national defense.
Statistics indicate the campaign has so far involved over 20 million households in Shandong, collecting around 75,000 works about family virtues and concepts.
According to organizers, the cumulative selection of 450,000 model households with the title of "Beautiful Families" has promoted modern household civilization and local social ethos.
