Duan Yong, deputy Party secretary of Shanghai University (SHU), shared his perspectives on Chinese cultural heritages with some 200 Chinese and international students on April 4.

Duan started from China's history, culture and geographical features, amusing the students through the categories of Chinese culture, while sharing with them pictures and videos of Chinese cultural treasures. He went ahead to explain the differences and similarities between historical relics and tangible cultural heritages.

According to Duan, cultural relics should be well protected and studied by successive generations in order to enhance people's mutual understanding and cooperation.

He also introduced the students to some historic sites in Shanghai and surrounding cities.

The students were delighted to broaden their knowledge of China, especially the history and richness of Chinese culture, in such a catchy and intelligible way.

The lecture, as part of SHU's "Knowing China" series, is designed to target overseas students, to help them blend well in Chinese society, handle cross-cultural issues, and grow up into cultural, artistic, economic and political experts on China in the future.
