Major international events cannot be held without the efforts of volunteers. The public is paying close attention to the recruitment of volunteers for Chengdu Universiade. How is the recruitment of volunteers progressing, including the number and proportion of college students involved and the scope of schools participating? What special training programs have been arranged for the event's needs? Thank you.

Wang Fengchao:

Thanks for your questions. The Universiade has recruited more than 20,000 volunteers, including professional volunteers providing services in areas such as language, competitions, award ceremonies, and flag-raising ceremonies. Recruitment was completed in March, and the volunteers are from 34 different universities.

They are currently undergoing general knowledge training, including 60 courses such as foreign affairs, international etiquette, oral communication skills, and civilized etiquette. The training is mainly conducted online, including testing. Volunteers who pass the tests will undergo an eight-day offline intensive training program to further improve their abilities. They will provide services in a series of test events in May and June and those who meet the requirements will thereafter begin their work. 

During the recently concluded Heads of Delegation Meeting (HoD Meeting), over 200 volunteers from 10 universities in Chengdu impressed the FISU officials and delegation members with their warm service, friendly attitude, professionalism, and fluency in multiple languages.

At the same time, we have launched the "Partnership Plan" for urban volunteer services, striving to create a strong atmosphere where "everyone is a volunteer." Over 1 million urban volunteers are expected to participate in publicizing the host city and the sports events, and providing other volunteer services. Volunteers of Chengdu Universiade are affectionately nicknamed "little green peppers." As the "image spokesperson" of the city, these volunteers will present Chengdu to the world with warm-hearted and thoughtful services, spreading the Tianfu culture that boasts amity and charity. Thank you.
