To welcome the new year, nine young speakers from Beijing, Hong Kong and overseas universities shared their thoughts on the Chinese dream, environmental conservation, art, wellbeing and adulthood.

The young people spoke at the event FlagTalk. A live audience of 400 attended the event, while the speeches were live-streamed online to further viewers around the world.

Wang Yunfan, a 12-year-old student from Beijing, talked about his great passion for high-speed trains, saying he dreams of being a railway engineer, designing the trains of the future.

Liu Xiwen, a high school student in Beijing, highlighted the significance of contributing to your community: “It is an important method to understand yourself as well as the world,” she said

They were joined by two adult speakers who offered practical insights to teenagers both anxious and eager to enter adulthood.

Built as a platform to share ideas and inspire conversation, FlagTalk will continue to invite more teen presenters to speak on various themes. All participants are selected online or through campus recruitment and recommendations.
