According to her experience, the stories of figures who have contributed to people's well-being are popular, such as that of the late agronomist Yuan Longping, the father of hybrid rice.

Many teenagers volunteer to be docents at the Hunan CPC History Museum where Chen works. She is surprised that an 11-year-old boy, a friend of Chen's son, asked to borrow The Communist Manifesto from her, to try and learn more about the Party's mission.

"Learning the Party's history can inspire people. Only when we know where we are from, can we clearly understand where we'll go," says Chen.

Besides spiritual enrichment, sports and physical education are also vital and have developed greatly in the past decade.

Li Ting, a delegate to the congress from the sports sector, says it's rare for the Party to put improving physical education for the young into its report to the National Congress of the CPC.

Li won gold in the women's 10-meter synchronized platform diving at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. She is now an official working in the sports department of South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

"Young people with strong bodies can build a strong country," Li explains.

She says people in Guangxi actively take part in various sports, noting that there are enough outdoor venues for them to enjoy table tennis, badminton, basketball and skateboarding, among other activities.

Guangxi is hilly, thus rock climbing was introduced into its physical education syllabus. In Mashan county of Nanning city, 23 rock climbing schools have been established since 2017. More than 18,000 students have taken part in rock climbing in the county, according to Li.

The hosting of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing has helped the promotion of winter sports in Guangxi, a region that has a hot summer and a mild winter.

Li often holds activities in schools, inviting medalists to meet with young people in the hope of igniting their passion for sports.

"People's love for outdoor activities has increased in recent years. With the joint efforts of individuals and the government, more people will join in to build a healthy China," says Li.
