In addition to the promotion of traditional Chinese culture, environmental protection and vegetarianism, the Branch aims to organize cultural events such as experiential tea ceremony, talks on Chan Buddhism as well as traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy exhibitions, so as to enrich the cultural life of community residents and to spread Chinese cultural traditions, and thereby contribute to the construction of a harmonious, sophisticated Hangzhou.
