Spring Festival is a festival of family reunion for many in East Asia and around the globe. It annually generates the largest human migration flow on Earth. However, amid decreasing mobility under the pandemic, how should people compromise longing for home and sanitary protections? How are celebrations adjusted? What are the psychological challenges in this season of warmth and love and how can we jointly tackle them? Join Camille, Andrea and Zizhou as they invite you for a moment of reflection.
