In the morning of August 3rd, China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and Beijing Association for Science and Technology (BAST) held a work meeting in Beijing Science Center to discuss how to promote a modern system of science and technology museums, to implement the program of Cultivating a City of Science and Technology Museums in Beijing, to ease the burden of excessive homework and off-campus tutoring for students undergoing compulsory education with science popularization, and to better promote scientific values and ethnics.

Leaders from CAST and BAST joined the meeting who are Yin Hao (Member of the Leading Party Members Group, Executive Secretary of the Secretariat of CAST, Curator of China Science and Technology Museum), Qian Yan (Secretary of teh Party Committee and Deputy Curator of China Science and Technology Museum), Zheng Haojun (Director of Science and Technology Communication Center of CAST), Chen Rui (Deputy Director of Science and Technology Communication Center of CAST), Shen Jie (Secretary of the Leading Party Members Group of BAST), Liu Xiaokan and Chen Weicheng (both Member of the Leading Party Members Group and Vice President of BAST).

Yin Hao fully affirmed that BAST has consistently focused on central tasks and served overall interests. It has made outstanding achievements in promoting scientific communication and building "A City of Science and Technology Museums". In order to strengthen the cooperation between the central and local governments, give full play to the service function of China Science and Technology Museum to Beijing people, and promote the co-construction and sharing of resources, Yin Hao put forward four suggestions: Firstly, promote "double reduction" work and drive equalization of public service with the concept of "double teachers", which refers to the school teachers to teach the curriculum, and science and technology museum teachers to teach science education. Secondly, give full play to the resource and talent advantage of Beijing Science Center to enrich and improve the exhibition and exhibits library of China Science and Technology Museum. Beijing Science Center is not only a user, but also a builder of the exhibition library. Thirdly, jointly promote the construction of digital science and technology museum, build a service platform for information sharing of physical science and technology museum system, and promote the joint construction and sharing of tour platform. Fourth, with help of China Science and Technology Museum, give play to the role of “1+16+N” as a science center system of Beijing Association for Science and Technology, to organize and mobilize resources such as university volunteers and caravans for science popularization, etc., and to shape “Beijing Model”.

Mrs. Shen Jie briefed on the newly held 10th Congress of BAST in mid July. The 10th Congress of BAST is a grand gathering of representatives of millions of scientific and technological workers. The Municipal Party Committee of Beijing, Beijing Municipal Government and the China Association for Science and Technology attach great importance to the congress. The speeches of the leaders and the report of the conference have aroused strong reactions among scientific and technological workers and all sectors of society in the capital, further enhancing the cohesion and influence of the work of the Association. In the next step, the Beijing Association for Science and Technology will strengthen the construction of social organization and enhance the organization, mobilization and cohesion of the Association of Science and Technology with the goal of “optimizing science and technology associations while improving science and technology association of university & research institutes, making practical  science and technology association in enterprises, refining the science and technology association in the park, and expanding the contact circle among the above”. We will establish the training mechanism of the responsible supervisors for young people, and build the "4+4" talent working system adapting to the innovation and development. We will vigorously promote the construction of "Digital Science and Technology Association" and actively integrate into the modernization process of national governance system and governance capacity. We will push forward the implementation of tasks related to strategic cooperation agreement between China Association for Science and Technology and Beijing Municipal Government.
