The event has attracted hundreds of video works from young people around the world. Among them, the important guest Francesco Pisano (Chair of The Cultural Activities Committee At UNOG) selected a work about Chinese Hanfu costume, which is about the in-depth communication between the famous Chinese actor Luo Yunxi and the Hanfu society. It shows the beauty of Chinese Hanfu and sends good wishes for it. In the video, actor Luo Yunxi shares his experience of wearing Hanfu: "Wearing Hanfu has nothing to do with the shape of your body, just bring your own unique energy to it." Afterward, Luo Yunxi talked to two Hanfu lovers. Zhang Junwei shared the history of Hanfu and some features of Hanfu costumes. "The full name of Hanfu is the traditional costume of the Han nationality, different dynasties have different Hanfu." "The middle seam (in hanfu) has a special meaning, 'When a gentleman is born in the world, he should be honest and impartial.'." Zhang Junwei said. During the conversation with Hanfu enthusiast Lü Xiaowei, she shared her experience of wearing Hanfu back in 2005, and she was proud of the flourishing of Hanfu. Francesco Pisano said the video surprised him, the revival of traditional culture wasn't started by those who are more senior and older. And it's interesting to see how young people want to reconnect to their traditional culture. At the end of the video, Luo Yunxi shared his good wishes for the revival of Hanfu: "What brings traditional culture back to modern society, is the rediscovery of ancient Chinese culture.

The dragon boat festival (端午节) will occur on the 14th of next month. The dragon boat festival is also called the double fifth festival (五月节）because it is held on the fifth day of the fifth month in the traditional Chinese calendar. Yet another name of the festival is Tuen Ng. This holiday is celebrated to commemorate the death of Qu yuan, an advisor in the court in the Chu dynasty. He lived during the warring states period. Legend has it that he killed himself in the Miluo river in Hunan province and became a spirit in the water. For many years, his supporters threw rice into the water to feed him but was always taken by the water dragon instead. For many years later, Qu yuan couldn't take it and came back to tell the people to wrap the rice leaves so the dragon couldn’t eat it. The rice wrapped in leaves became known as zongzi 粽子. Today, people celebrate by eating zongzi, drinking xionghuangjiu 雄黄酒, watching dragon boat races, eating with family, and hanging calamus and wormwood to ward off evil. Dragon boats are long boats with the head of a dragon and scales on its sides. These boats require multiple people to move it. People also wear perfumed satchels on this day.Original link
