Following the successful co-sponsorship of the 2nd China Youth Auto Model Science and Technology Creative Competition by Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Nissan (China)) and Beijing UNESCO Association in 2014, Nissan (China) once again co-sponsored the 3rd China Youth Auto Model Creation held at Beijing Automobile Museum from August 1 to 12. Italy competition. The competition was sponsored by China Education Association, China Science and Technology Association Youth Science and Technology Center, Beijing UNESCO Association and other organizations, and received the support of the China Automobile Industry Association and other units.
The China Youth Auto Model Science and Technology Creative Competition, which combines science and technology education with hands-on practice, provides a platform for young people to practice their automobile ideas and show their talents. The competition is divided into automotive creative painting, creative shell painting, creative car model making, Mini racing, cross-country car competition and other competition units. Finally, 260 of the more than 20,000 athletes from 16 provinces, cities and municipalities directly under the Central Government participated in the final of the Beijing Automobile Museum.
Nissan (China) not only provided a wealth of prizes for the competition, but also participated in creative car model making projects and car shell painting projects. In the automobile model making project, through the communication and feedback with the competitors, the work has more social benefits, and some of the innovative ideas have won the high praise of experts on the spot. In the case painting project, "Nissan Dream Classroom" brought the contents of the spray painting classroom to the competition field. Through on-site practice, the young athletes not only learned the scientific and technological knowledge of spray painting and painting, but also directly experienced the importance of engineers and technicians in the production of automobiles. The products are very popular and widely appreciated by the experts present.
Nissan awarded a special Nissan Innovation Award to the top eight performers and invited them to participate in the NISSAN Visit to Creative Technology in 2015. Nissan Automobile in China contributes to the sustainable development of Chinese society by enriching children's vision, improving creativity through educational support projects.
As a global mainstream automobile manufacturer, maintaining the sustainable development of the industry and its own is Nissan's core strategy. Nissan has actively participated in various public welfare undertakings, and has devoted itself to safety, environmental protection, educational support and humanistic care. In China, Nissan hopes to enrich children's vision, enhance imagination and creativity, and contribute to the sustainable development of Chinese society through educational support programs. Continuous cooperation with the China Youth Auto Model Science and Technology Creative Competition will help more teenagers understand and love automobiles, and have more opportunities to experience the joy automobiles can bring to them, freeing them from the dream of becoming automotive engineers.
Wu Weiwei, vice director of corporate social responsibility and activity planning at Nissan (China), told reporters that choosing to support the youth creative contest matches Nissan's CSR spirit in many ways. Supporting youth education has always been one of Nissan's areas of concern, and this activity can not only be associated with Nissan. Local society is beneficial to the integration, can really promote the development of local society, and can help the healthy growth of the next generation. The theme of the Junior Car Model Competition is to open children's eyes and stimulate their imagination and creativity through such activities. For example, car design, when the child puts forward the initial idea, we give feedback, and then they modify the feedback, and finally make the final product.
Nissan's dream course series was not available in 2013. The main reason for the development of the new curriculum is that we find that many children have access to automobiles, but they do not know about automobiles. The direct harm to children is traffic safety. In 2013, I chose to teach road traffic safety knowledge in Ya'an, hoping to raise the road traffic safety awareness of children in remote mountainous areas and reduce the occurrence of traffic accidents. Now we hope that through the opening of the new curriculum, to explore the potential of children, this time through the children's imagination, bring us a lot of surprises. A series of Nissan dream-building classes are offered in the school, which allows teachers to discover the advantages of students, consciously cultivate their strengths and guide them to better study. Through the course content, open up children's horizons, so that children understand a more exciting world, stimulate their more imagination and creativity.
Asked why Nissan (China) chose to cooperate with the UNESCO Association in Beijing, and what other activities are planned for the future, Wu told reporters that after three years of continuous cooperation with the UNESCO Association in Beijing, UNESCO has given support to education, science and culture, he said. We understand the actual situation of Chinese education, including education policy and educational resources. In line with Nissan's CSR focus areas, consensus was reached in continuous communication and subsequently smoothly launched the relevant cooperation activities. In the future, although Beijing UNESCO Association involves a wide range of content, but Nissan Motor at this stage still hopes to do better care for the future star.
