During the activity, under the guidance of Chinese teachers and students, international students experienced excellent Chinese traditional culture such as lantern making, calligraphy and riddle guessing. Later, we all learned and read the eternal famous lines in the famous Song Dynasty poet Su Shi “When is the Moon?”. Joseph from Morocco sighed that the Chinese culture had a long history and was broad and profound. The development model and the concept of global governance in China today all highlight the Chinese people's traditional cultural concept of advocating elegance, loving peace and seeking great harmony for thousands of years.
