Beijing Institute of Geo-exploration Technology recently organized a one-week awareness campaign celebrating the 52nd Earth Day, in the theme of “Love the Planet, & Harmonious Symbiosis between Man and Nature”.

 On April 20th, the Earth Day awareness campaign week theming “Using Urban Resources Scientifically and Imagining Future Urban Development” was officially launched at Beijing Municipal Commission of Planning and Natural Resources. As co-organizer, the “Learning and Practice Class” of Beijing Institute of Geo-exploration Technology worked in association with the Geological Society of Beijing and organized exchanges with Beijing Planning Exhibition Hall, and prepared for the campaign by engaging in seminars and popular science activities. The institute brought to Beijing Planning and Exhibition Hall 1 knowledge board featuring “Geothermal Resources & Green and Renewable Energy” and 7 popular-science videos featuring groundwater monitoring, disaster prevention, active fracture and shallow geothermal energy, etc., which were displayed in the hall’s popular science gallery on urban resources.

On April 24, the “Learning and Practice Class” of Beijing Institute of Geo-explanation Technology worked with the Geological Society of Beijing and Beijing Society for Ecological Rehabilitation, and jointly launched an Earth Day popular science event at the Wanda Plaza in Shijingshan District. 60 trainees and committee members of the class attended the event.

A total of 23 exhibition boards were set up in the outdoor space, all of which were carefully prepared by different teams of the “Learning and Practice Class”. Over a thousand pieces of handouts were distributed, with volunteers sharing relevant knowledge on the site. Indoor lectures were organized in a synchronized fashion, covering 6 topics of “water and health”, “understanding geological disasters”, “retaining lush mountain and fertile land”, “geothermal resources”, “digital geo-information” and “ecological rehabilitation”. The live lectures attracted pedestrians who joined in by interacting with lecturers and asking questions. The event turned out to be successful in helping the public learn more about geo-environment and raise the public awareness in caring for Planet Earth.
