At the same time, they also take proactive actions to support and participate in the grassroots epidemic prevention work in Beijing to promote the spirit of ecological humanism of Beijing, advocating the value behavior of "I am doing kindness first".

For the epidemic prevention at the grassroots level in the capital, we have donated materials to the Municipal Public Security Bureau's Service Support Department and the police stations and traffic detachments of the Dongcheng Branch and Shunyi Branch. The portability of the targeted procurement of epidemic prevention materials is conducive to the distribution of individual soldiers in order to express thanks to their devotion to the safety of Beijing citizens, adhere to the epidemic situation on duty in the first line; also through the civil affairs system, donating materials to the Jinbao Street North Community Working Committee, Zhandong Community, Fengtai District Dongtiejiangying Street Community, Jianguomen Street, Dongcheng District; The International Ecological Economy Promotion Association (IEEPA) also actively mobilized the deployment, guided the staff to take action, under the circumstances of making self-protection, they are encouraged to take the initiative to go to the grassroots, enter the community, support the front line of epidemic prevention work, and make efforts to strengthen the key areas and weak links of the epidemic prevention and control of the community.
On March 5, 2020, Li Junyang, the full-time vice president of the International Ecological Economy Promotion Association (IEEPA) led the team and took the initiative to go to the grass-roots to directly participate in the frontline epidemic prevention and control work while carrying out the research and analysis of the grassroots community work. They put forward suggestions for optimizing the working methods to cadres of street offices and community, the person in charge of the territorial property and volunteers participating in the grassroots work on the spot.
The full-time deputy chairman Li Junyang participated in the grassroots duty while exchanging work experience with grassroots cadres. He said that Beijing, as the capital of the country, is currently facing huge pressures for the return of personnel ouside of Beijing, such as Beijing Railway Station, Capital Airport, High Speed Railway Station and other transportation hubs are key areas with continuous increase in human flow. When we are working at the grassroots level, we must first check and strictly implement the unified deployment requirements for epidemic prevention. At the same time, we must also emphasize the ecological and humanistic Beijing spirit; Beijing is building a "first kindness area", where no xenophobia should be allowed, no matter where the person comes from, business or temporary visitors are guests, people who work and live here are residents as well as citizens of Beijing; People who do not meet the entry and exit regulations should also be treated in an appropriate way, rather than just routed them out rudely ; humanization is the first crucial point of "first kindness", which is to let the people feel the meaning of Beijing's "first kindness", that is, relying on our grassroots staff, through each day and every moment in the work process, to better grasp and contact with every people, explaining policies as far as possible, specifying relevant measures and solutions, eliminating problems, in order to help them as much as possible, if they really can’t help after making efforts, they should be as concerned and warm as possible This is what everyone of us could do at the grassroots level, because each of us just want to shine like a "sparkling red star" at the grassroots level.
Acting Vice President Li Junyang emphasized that sometimes he watched the news and saw outsiders in Beijing who were stopped outside of the community gate for various reasons, especially those who had nowhere to go in the middle of the night, his heart felt very sad. Why can’t we take the initiative to take a step forward in our duties In addition, think of more methods and comparing your heart to their heart. It shows that our grassroots work still needs to be refined, and the responsibilities on our shoulders are also very great. Sometimes I don’t feel power in my hand, in fact, even there is only a little power in your hand, since faced with the mass of people, if it is improper used, they can also feel the trouble caused by this little power; even many of them have to travel around for life. So human nature must be taken into consideration, just treat these people as your relatives. While implementing strict measures, you also need to make them feel warm. Strictly performing duties and humanistic care, and humanistic measures and methods, are not contradictory to each other.
The secretary of the East Community Working Committee of Jianguomen Street Station in Dongcheng District and the community cadres on duty together appreciated the statement of Vice Chairman Li Junyang. They have a deep understanding of the complexity of grassroots work, and the grassroots work is closely related to the people.
