The idea of Green Olympics demonstrates the priority given to ecological conservation, life and health. The Beijing 2022 Games sets an example in this regard and puts this idea into action through low-carbon venues, low-carbon transportation and industrial renovation of the Shougang Park.
Yanqing Zone, as one of the three competition zones of the Beijing 2022 Games, is an important ecological protective barrier and water protection area for Beijing, capitol of China.
Throughout the history of the Winter Olympics, the Yanqing competition zone is a project with the most construction difficulties and highest construction standards and finished within the shortest period. It has the most difficult tracks and the most complicated venue, thus dubbed as the most challenging Winter Olympic competition zone. Tens of thousands of constructors have worked in harsh conditions to finish their jobs.
Every life deserves respect.
In early 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic caught us all by surprise and ravaged across the world. The virus has put human beings through a global pandemic that is more infectious than any other disease in nearly a century. This is a severe crisis and common challenge faced by all people in the world. In response to the virus, all people have supported each other and navigated through difficulties in joint efforts. After the pandemic, people would better realize the importance of life and health, and aspire for major sports and art events that demonstrate recovery, prosperity and hope. Under such a circumstance, the 9th Beijing Biennale and the Beijing 2022 Games are of historical significance. The former showcases the energy of “the Light of Life” with visual arts, whereas the latter lights the Olympic flame that symbolizes peace, unity, friendship and brightness. The two events bring the light of hopes to the world to put the virus under control and illuminate our path forward. This is like when there is light faraway, we can be full of hopes and see the path forward clearly.
On January 30th, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the Covid-19 pandemic constituted a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).
