A voluntary tree-planting activity was held at the Shahe Campus of Beihang on April 9, adorning the university with new brushes of green.
It was attended by over 30 people, including the university leadership, people in charge of departments at Shahe Campus and student representatives. Among the leaders were Cao Shumin, Xu Huibin, He Xinzhou, Tao Zhi, Liu Shuchun, Huang Haijun, Wang Yunpeng, Zhang Guang, Zhao Gang, Wang Rongqiao and Cheng Bo.
The participants planted trees like lacebark pine and plum at the green space on the south side of Shahe Campus as planned, aiming to beautify the campus.
Such activity, according to Chinese President Xi Jinping at a voluntary tree-planting activity in Beijing on April 3, is a boost to the economic and social progress and the return to normal work and life as the situation of epidemic control in China keeps improving. He also considers it as a way to promote respect and care for nature and the harmony between humans and nature.
Following his ecological view, Beihang believes that lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets and has added 20,078 square meters of green space (including the part that is under construction) from 2019 to 2020. An increase of 229 trees, 777 flowering shrubs, 3,334 square meters of hedgerow and 12,565 square meters of flowers and ground cover have taken place to make sure that the campus enjoys blossom for three seasons and luxuriant green foliage throughout the year.
After the tree-planting activity, the leaders visited the National Engineering Laboratory of Additive Manufacturing for Large Metallic Components, construction sites of dormitories, dining halls and wind tunnels as well as the canteens at Shahe Campus to know about the situation of work resumption and epidemic control and express their solicitude to the workers there.
