On behalf of the JUFE, Vice President Yuan Xiong expressed his gratitude to every teacher, student and staff who protected Jiaohu Lake. He pointed out that Jiaohu Lake is one of the top ten famous lakes in Chinese universities and the core landscape of JUFE. The holding of the Fishing Festival confirms the JUFE's concept of educating people, which is “to teach someone how to fish is better than to just give him a fish”. The joint participation of teachers and students in activities is not only conducive to the establishment of ecological protection awareness, but also motivate students to participate in the whole process of labor, strengthen their labor education, and enhance the awareness of creating a better life with their own hard work.

After processing, it will be free for all teachers, students and alumni to share the achievements of Jiaohu Lake construction.” Xiao Jianwen, director of the Logistics and Asset Management Department, said.
