The Universiade is a comprehensive world games second only to the Olympic Games in scale and is a sports event representing the highest level of competition among university students from around the world. How will the Chengdu Universiade promote the competition of athletic skills, exchanges, and interactions among the global youth?

Wang Jiayi:

Thank you to this reporter for your question. The mission of the Universiade is to improve the level of global university sport, promote exchanges and cooperation among university students of all countries, and enhance understanding and friendship. It is not only a sports stage for global youth to compete with each other in terms of athletic skills and improve their level of competition but also an educational platform for youth to communicate and interact with each other and broaden their international horizons. Given that the Chengdu Universiade arrives following three years defined by the COVID-19 pandemic, university students from around the world have stronger aspirations for such kind of exchanges.

The Chengdu Universiade will make full arrangements for carrying out global youth exchanges and interactions. Currently, we are formulating and improving a special plan for cultural exchanges. Based on the guiding principle of organizing diverse activities that are fashionable and cater to the taste of young people, provide them with enough cultural experience, and promote shared prosperity of all civilizations, we have come up with the arrangements for a series of activities to facilitate the exchanges of global university students in terms of sports, science and technology, culture, and innovation. During the Universiade, we will hold an art exhibition featuring the park city of Chengdu in the Universiade Village, as well as intangible cultural heritage exhibitions and experience activities, Chinese and international youth interaction activities themed on music, dance, and Sichuan Opera, and exchange activities, including getting close to watch giant pandas and visiting city museums to experience the culture of the city. Chengdu also has Sanxingdui Ruins site and Chengdu delicacies, which are quite popular among university students. All these can demonstrate the unique culture of the host country and host city and better promote in-depth exchanges and interactions among the global youth.

At the same time, as an important part of the events during the Universiade, the FISU World Conference and other academic exchange events will also be held. Themed "University Sports: Embracing a Colorful World," sports-centered academic exchange and discussion events will be organized in various forms, including oral reports on specific subjects, expert forums, round-table discussions, and group discussions. 

We will take the Universiade as an opportunity, and leverage the Universiade website as a platform to launch a column for young reporters. Focusing on topics of concern among contemporary university students, we will widely mobilize global university students to carry out exchanges and interaction and encourage them to contribute to the organization of the Universiade, the spread of diverse cultures, and friendly exchanges between China and other countries to jointly advance the building of a community with a shared future for global youth. Thank you.
