Jin Lu, secretary of the Communist Youth League committee at the Daxing district, briefly introduced the three-year plan and launched a series of initiatives that will help construct the new Beijing Daxing International Airport, a national civilized district and strengthen cooperation with local universities.
Daxing initiated a three-year action plan to promote voluntary work on Dec 5, 2015 in which the district carried out new ways of developing the sector in terms of management, professional training, project support and cultural promotion. It was listed as the nation's second batch of volunteer pioneering zones by China Volunteer Service Federation.
To date, Daxing has a total of 303,000 registered volunteers, accounting for 19.3 percent of the total residents. The district is home to 471 five-star volunteers, more than 5,000 voluntary families, 6863 voluntary service teams and 186,954 voluntary projects.
The voluntary work has become a key part of Daxing's social governance and the district has formed a sound atmosphere.
In the next three years, Daxing's voluntary work will focus on economic and social development including the security guarantee system of airport, rural revitalization, environmental protection, and safe construction. It is committed to optimizing the support system of voluntary services, enhancing the sense of honor of volunteers and offering world-class services for people in need.
Based on the Volunteers Promote the City Development three-year plan, Daxing is expected to enhance the role of voluntary services in the construction of spiritual civilization — intellectual and moral qualities and social governance in its efforts to build a more beautiful and prosperous society.
