The organizer invited Lian Si, author of the "Ant Tribe" and professor from the University of International Business and Economics to attend the discussion.

"In fact, my subject is to study potential social risks. The 'ant tribe' is essentially different from other social groups. They are well-educated, capable and ambitious, and they just do not have their own houses," Lian said. "In 10 years, many of them will become social elites, and the experience of living in 'ant tribes' will affect their viewpoints about society and how to educate their offspring. Therefore, paying attention to the 'ant tribe' means paying attention to our future and talents."

Lian also said that when his research findings were released, many people thought university graduates should go to small cities for better personal development instead of living in "ant tribes" in big cities. Some others said that living in "ant tribes" is an unavoidable period in young people's lives and they should march forward bravely since they are university graduates. All these viewpoints are worthy of discussion.
