The fifth anniversary of launch of the "Beijing Role Models" event was marked by an exhibition that opened Thursday, displaying some 2,000 photos and more than 10 videos documenting the stories of the honored citizens in the past five years. 

The exhibition, jointly organized by the Publicity Department of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee and the Beijing Civilization Office, featured three themed exhibition halls -- "Milestones," "Role Models," and "Highlights."

On Nov. 8, the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee issued a document calling upon residents to learn from the city's role models. Nearly 10,000 individuals over the past five years were recommended by the city's districts, industries, and unit from 250,000 nominees. More than 600 individuals received titles of the "Beijing Role Models."

The exhibition hall for Thursday's event impressed visitors right from its entrance, with golden doorposts in the shape of the "Beijing Role Model" trophy, which led them to the photos, videos and exhibits telling the positive influences the role models have brought to the city.  

In the "Role Models" hall, a retiree surnamed Wang learned about He Yufeng, the 2017 "Beijing Role Model" who volunteers to pick up litter to protect the Guishui River, and said he would also like to be a volunteer and contribute to Beijing's environmental protection. 

Many visitors at the "Highlight" hall took pictures with trophies, medals and ribbons on display, while browsing through the pictures, videos and exhibits of a series of "Beijing Role Models" activities.  

The exhibition also featured a virtual reality interactive area. Visitors had the chance to experience safety protocols for construction workers by trying on a hard hat and using VR technology designed by Yang Jinfeng, who created the new training method for construction safety. Yang won a special "Beijing Role Models" award for sub-center construction in the 2017.

Before exiting the exhibition halls, visitors were invited to write down their experiences and feedbacks about the "Beijing Role Models" on postcards and insert them into a mail box. The organizers said they would later select interesting notes to highlight. 

The organizers also launched an online exhibition platform that can demonstrate the exhibition halls and exhibits in a 360-degree panoramic view mode. The platform can be accessed by scanning a QR code. 

A few honored "Beijing Role Models" have been invited to the exhibition to share their stories and interact with visitors. 

The photo exhibition is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Dec. 5. Admission is free to all citizens with valid ID cards. The exhibition will host a closing ceremony on its last day at 3 p.m.
