The book series presents six real world scenarios that are likely to occur in children's daily life, covers more than 100 items of traffic safety knowledge, and allows parents and children to learn children's road safety and other children's safety knowledge together.

Dr. Johann Wieland said, "As an industry advocator that practices strategic CSR, each BMW's CSR program originates from first identifying a specific social problem. BMW CTSE has persevered in the field for 13 years, becoming a long running children's road safety CSR project in the Chinese auto industry. With a focus on children's safety at its core, BMW's 2017 Children's Traffic Safety Education launched the civilized traffic initiative "BMW Good Driver". Through BMW's CSR commitment, we hope to lead the 3 million BMW owners in China as well as BMW associates and authorized dealers to become role models in making a pledge to civilized driving and promoting road safety for children."

Ms. Zhang Ming, the director of Department of Publicity and Education, Traffic Management of the Public Security Ministry, said: "The mission to improve children's road traffic safety is a monumental one but also arduous. The Public Security Ministry will continue to take action against illegal traffic behavior and innovatively promote traffic safety in order to provide a safe environment for children as well as guide them in recognizing threats and avoiding danger. At the same time, we hope parents earnestly fulfill their duties as guardians, and set good examples for children in terms of traffic safety." Ms. Zhang has also made an appeal for more companies related to the auto industry to follow the example of BMW and join the charity-based traffic safety promotion alliance, actively fulfilling corporate social responsibility, producing innovations and launching a series of effective promotional charity activities.

According to the "Children's Road Traffic Injury Situation in China Research Report" released by the Ministry of Public Security's Road Traffic Safety Research Center and China's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 87.09% of traffic accidents involving children are caused by adults’ improper driving. In fact, adult drivers’ poor and illegal driving habits constitute a main threat to children's road safety. In light of that, the Traffic Management Bureau of the Public Security Ministry launched an appeal for civilized traffic with its "China Good Driver" initiative, leveraging the strength and influence of auto corporations and car clubs to promote adult drivers’ good traffic behavior and create a safe road environment for children. In support of the government's call, 2017 BMW CTSE has launched "BMW Good Driver", a themed campaign that targets adult drivers. This campaign is initiated by BMW, but extends its reach much further; using popular social platforms, this campaign encourages the public to participate by sharing photos and videos of their own courteous travel habits examples, making good on their commitment to civilized traffic.

Joining Hands Big and Small, Together We Care for Children's Traffic Safety

2016 BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education Kicked Off

(Beijing) The 2016 BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education program (CTSE) was officially launched at Beijing Olympic Forest Park on May 31st. Dr. Anton Heiss, President & CEO, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., announced that the program, with the theme of "Joining Hands Big and Small, Together We Care for Children's Traffic Safety," will feature comprehensive innovations in programming, participants and content while entering its 12th consecutive year. In the five months to come, this program will successively travel to Hefei, Shanghai, Shenyang, Wuhan and Foshan. Furthermore, in celebration of BMW's 100th anniversary, CTSE will set up the first fixed BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education Experience Center in Shenyang.

Mr. Li Zejun, Sub-Inspector, Traffic Management Bureau, the Ministry of Public Security; Mr. Wang Jing, Secretary General, China Road Traffic Safety Association; Mr. Han Min, Editor-in-Chief, General Manager, China Communications Press Co., Ltd., as well as VIPs from Road Traffic Safety Research Center of the Ministry of Public Security, and China Road Traffic Safety Association also participated in the ceremony.

At the kick-off ceremony, Dr. Anton Heiss and guests donated the Traffic Safety Education Book for Primary and Secondary School Students, jointly published by BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. and China Communications Press Co., Ltd., to parents and children who attended the activity. The book, covering road etiquette and traffic safety knowledge, will be distributed for free to primary and secondary students in several regions around China in an effort to spread children's traffic safety knowledge more widely and comprehensively.

"BMW CTSE is our first corporate social responsibility program that has been running successfully for 12 years," said Dr. Anton Heiss. "The program has traveled through 63 cities, bringing road safety education to more than 390,000 parents and their children. We are so happy to see that we have made a difference in building a safer world for children, and that is the motivation and reason behind the implementation of our CSR strategy."

Mr. Li Zejun, Sub-Inspector, Traffic Management Bureau, the Ministry of Public Security, stated: "Children's traffic safety has been a focus for the Traffic Management Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security for a long time. Recently, the Ministry of Public Security has frequently requested that local public security and traffic management departments strengthen the management of school buses and the promotion of children's traffic safety. Additionally, we have been performing detailed investigations on school buses and vehicles in collaboration with departments of the Ministry of Education. And we have conducted activities like "Guardian Angel" at schools and kindergartens. We have realized that to enhance children's safety is not only the responsibility of the government, but also that of every parent, as well as all members of society. Every parent should be an active learner of traffic safety knowledge and set good examples in following traffic regulations." Mr. Li also encouraged more enterprises to participate in CSR activities to promote children's traffic safety, and more mainstream media to care for children's traffic safety, so as to increase the awareness on traffic safety, especially on that for children.

According to relative statistics, automobile accidents are one of the primary causes of injury to children in China, with 11,500 children under the age of 12 having died or been injured due to traffic accidents. Parents are of great importance in ensuring the safety of children under 12, however, parents in China generally lack safety awareness or general safety knowledge, which is the major reason behind the high frequency of traffic accidents involving children.

Therefore, the 2016 BMW CTSE program takes parents’ education as a priority and teaches them practical safety knowledge, such as how to use a safety seat properly. At present, vehicles are one of the most frequent modes of transportation for children and are one of the main causes of fatalities among children under 17, mainly due to the lack or improper use of the child safety seat. Additionally, the program will teach parents in-car and out-of-car safety knowledge that is normally overlooked in order to further cultivate their driving habits and etiquettes, in turn creating a safer environment for children.

Programmatically, the theme park has initiated three brand-new modules: "AnAn Train The Trainer Classroom," "AnAn Innovation Club" and "AnAn Dollschat Club". Firstly, professional trainers from the BMW China Training Academy systematically explain children's traffic safety and introduce the dos and don’ts when using a child safety seat. Parents and children can also practice and experience the traffic safety education through playing a game called "AnAn Traffic School." Secondly, the AnAn Innovation Club, a result of design thinking, inspires children's creativity and develops their capabilities. Lastly, the "AnAn Dollschat Club" creates a fascinating interactive space and teaches children about traffic safety through playing games.

Following current public reading habits, AnAn's Story, the BMW CTSE series cartoon, will be upgraded to short animated videos, rich with knowledge and humor, which can be played via mobile platforms, to spread efficiently and effectively on children's traffic safety education to target audiences.

As early as 2005, BMW CTSE was introduced to China, making BMW one of automotive companies who launch such corporate social responsibility program in the country in earlier times.The program has been carried out in 63 cities and benefited more than 390,000 people to date. With wit and humor, the content of the BMW Traffic Safety Textbook for Schoolchildren and the AnAn's Story TV series consistently receive much praise from both children and parents across the nation.

It is so impressive to commit to such a public welfare program for 12 years and make it effective and influential. It deserves the common efforts of the whole society to pay more attention to children's traffic safety education, just as the theme of today's event ‘Joining Hands Big and Small, Together We Care for Children's Traffic Safety’ preaches. This is such a warm commitment to create a safer, more harmonious traffic environment for children."

Besides the popular "AnAn Driving School," the 2016 BMW CTSE theme park has also initiated three brand new modules: "AnAn Train The Trainer Classroom," "AnAn Innovation Club" and "AnAn Dollschat Club," to systematically spread children's traffic safety knowledge in more interactive and innovative ways.

Firstly, professional trainers from the BMW China Training Academy and Love Ambassadors from BMW dealers systematically explain children's traffic safety knowledge to parents, and introduce the dos and don’ts when using a child safety seat. Parents and children can then apply what they have learned to a game called "AnAn Assembling Race."

The book, jointly published by BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. and China Communications Press Co., Ltd., covers road etiquette and traffic safety knowledge, and will be distributed for free to primary and secondary students in several regions around China in an effort to spread children's traffic safety knowledge more widely and comprehensively.

Since its launch in 2005, BMW CTSE has persisted in spreading children's knowledge by playing games through diversified education methods and then strengthening their safety awareness and self-protection habits. BMW CTSE has been carried out in 63 cities and benefited more than 390,000 people to date. In the five months to come, this program will successively travel to Shanghai, Shenyang, Wuhan and Foshan, spreading more useful and effective traffic safety knowledge to children and parents there with interesting courses and interactive games, and strengthening its social impact via creating a safer world for children.

Ms. Molly Yang, Vice President of BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., and Mr.Ding Bin, Shanghai Public Security Bureau, attended the opening ceremony of the Shanghai Stop.

Ms. Molly Yang, Vice President of BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd.,stated: "Over the past decade, China has rapidly transformed into a mobile society. As a result, new challenges,such as road safety, have become serious social issues, increasing the demand for traffic safety education, especially that of children.To face this serious social challenge, BMW,as a responsible corporate citizen,introduced CTSE to China in 2005. Throughout its 12 years, our program has traveled through 63 cities, bringing road safety education to more than 390,000 parents and children. At the same time, we care deeply about the various relevant issues concerning children's traffic safety, and strive to make innovations that enhance our program design. We have been dedicated to creating a safer environment for children by leveraging all available social resources."

Mr. Ding Bin, Shanghai Public Security Bureau, expressed his praise and appreciation: "With China's economic and social development, the presence of automobiles in China has increased at an unprecedented pace. The city traffic environment is becoming more complex, which augments the threat to teenagers’ traffic safety. The theme of the event today is "Joining Hands Big and Small, Together We Care for Children's Traffic Safety," because it is the responsibility of the whole society to create a harmonious traffic environment for children by adjusting parents’ driving habits and spreading traffic safety knowledge to the public.

Besides the popular "AnAn Driving School," the 2016 BMW CTSE theme park has also initiated three brand new modules: "AnAn Train The Trainer Classroom," "AnAn Innovation Club" and "AnAn Dollschat Club," to systematically spread children's traffic safety knowledge to parents and their children and improve their safety awareness in more interactive and innovative ways.

Firstly, professional trainers from the BMW China Training Academy,systematically explain children's traffic safety knowledge to parents, and introduce the dos and don’ts when using a child safety seat. Parents and children can then apply what they have learned to a game called "AnAn Assembling Race." Secondly, the AnAn Innovation Club, a result of design thinking, inspires children's creativity and further develops their capabilities. Lastly, the "AnAn Dollschat Club" creates a fascinating interactive space for education, and teaches children about traffic safety through playing games.

At Shanghai stop, a special Safe Driving Course for parents was arranged, where parents were encouraged to learn about the various safety configurations in cars and valuable tips for driving safely.

Furthermore, besides holding road shows, BMW will establish the first fixed BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education Experience Center in Shenyang, which will offer long-term and sustainable children's traffic safety education to more children and parents. Additionally, the Traffic Safety Education Book for Primary and Secondary School Students,jointly published by BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. and China Communications Press Co., Ltd., covers road etiquette and traffic safety knowledge, will be distributed for free to primary and secondary school students in several regions throughout China in an effort to spread children's traffic safety knowledge more widely and comprehensively.

BMW is the first corporate to establish a public social welfare program on children's traffic safety education in China. Since its launch in 2005, BMW CTSE has persisted in spreading knowledge to the country's children by facilitating games with diversified education methods and then strengthening their safety awareness and self-protection habits. In the days to come, this program will successively travel through Shenyang, Wuhan and Foshan, spreading more useful and effective traffic safety knowledge to children and parents at each stop with interesting courses and interactive games, so as to strengthen its social impact via creating a safer world for children.

The First BMW CTSE Experience Center Officially Opens in Shenyang

(Shenyang) On August 25th, 2016, the first BMW CTSE Experience Center officially opened in the Shenyang Science Centrum. It is BMW's first public indoor fixed center and the first non-profit children's traffic safety experiential venue in northeast China. BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education (CTSE), a 12-year CSR program, has been fully upgraded in an innovative way to better contribute to Chinese society. Dr. Anton Heiss, President & CEO, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., and Lian Maojun, Secretary-General, Shenyang Government, attended the opening ceremony.

The BMW CTSE Experience Center aims to provide a year-round platform of public welfare for parents and children to enjoy innovative programming and well-designed interactions on children's traffic safety education.

Dr. Anton Heiss stated at the opening: "At BMW, we firmly believe that an excellent corporate citizen should not only have prominent business strength, but also take account of stakeholders in order to drive the industry's development and boost society's unceasing progress. BMW CTSE is our longest CSR program in China and has been running successfully for 12 years so far. The BMW CTSE Experience Center is an innovative result based on the 12 years of experience and responding to growing public demand. As we are celebrating BMW's centenary anniversary this year, the BMW CTSE Experience Center is a special gift we present to parents and children in Shenyang – BMW's Second Hometown."

As BMW's longest-running CSR program in China, BMW CTSE has been brought to 63 cities, benefiting 390,000 people, since its introduction in 2005. The acceleration of urbanization has driven China's transition into a mobile society, which brings with it growing public demand for children's traffic safety education. In this social context, and based on its 12-year experience in children's traffic safety education, BMW CTSE introduces the fixed BMW CTSE Experience Center as an upgraded innovation to this program, while still retaining the traditional roadshow agenda.

Under the professional guidance from the Traffic Management Research Institute of Public Security Ministry, the first BMW CTSE Experience Center is designed to address different specific scenarios and is equipped with special training devices, which all take into account the psychological characteristics of children aged 4 to 9. The whole center is divided into nine functional areas: School Bus Safety Experience, Child Safety Seat Crash Simulator, Child Safety Seat Display Area, Traffic Sign Learning Area, AnAn Traffic School, AnAn Dollschat Club, AnAn Innovation Club, AnAn TTT Classroom, and AnAn Cinema.

The BMW CTSE Experience Center features the following 3 advantages:

? In terms of target audience, the Experience Center makes parents a priority. In response to the widespread problem of a lack of traffic safety awareness and knowledge among parents, it specially designs experience areas and related content for parents.

? In terms of content, the Experience Center addresses the key problems within children's traffic safety, including school bus safety, child safety seat, etc.

? In terms of program design, the Experience Center follows children's learning characteristics to integrate innovative technologies, parent-child interaction and immersive teaching methods, so as to motivate children and parents to learn useful traffic safety knowledge together, as well as to inspire the children's creativity and develop their individual study capabilities and innovative spirit.

BMW CTSE Experience Center will be open to the public year-round and free of charge. In addition to group appointments for parents and children to receive scientific and interactive experiential safety education, the center will regularly launch themed activities to spread children's traffic safety knowledge in a diversified manner.

As BMW's "Second Hometown," Shenyang is of great significance. Choosing Shenyang as the location for its first CTSE Experience Center illustrates both BMW's strong emotional link to - and value of - the city. Meanwhile, the center will be a new corporate social responsibility platform for BMW through which to mobilize stakeholders to make social contributions. In the future, specially-trained associate volunteers from BMW Brilliance Automotive (BBA) will serve as "BMW Children's Traffic Safety Ambassadors" in the center to provide regular volunteer services for daily operations. At the opening ceremony, Dr. Robert Engelhorn, Senior Vice President, Technology & Manufacturing, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., awarded the BMW Children's Traffic Safety Ambassador Certificate to the associate volunteers from the BBA factory.

Since its official kickoff in Beijing at the end of May, 2016 BMW CTSE has traveled to Hefei and Shanghai, with more than 5,000 parents and children participating in the roadshow. The practical and effective interactive experiences with children's traffic safety, especially the "Child Safety Crash Simulator" for parents, have educated parents in the most effective way about the importance of the child safety seat, and were met with an enthusiastic response.

Stick to innovation and contribute to solve children's traffic safety

According to relative statistics, automobile accidents are one of the primary causes of injury to children in China, with 11,500 children under the age of 12 having died or been injured due to traffic accidents. Parents are of great importance in ensuring the safety of children under 12, however, parents in China generally lack safety awareness or general safety knowledge, which is the major reason behind the high frequency of traffic accidents involving children.

Therefore, the 2016 BMW CTSE program takes parents’ education as a priority and teaches them practical safety knowledge, such as how to use a safety seat properly. Additionally, the program will teach parents in-car and out-of-car safety knowledge that is normally overlooked in order to further cultivate their driving habits and etiquettes, in turn creating a safer environment for children.

Safety for Joyful Childhood

2015 BMW Children's Traffic Safety Education (CTSE) Successfully Concluded in Guangzhou

The 2015 BMW CTSE was successfully concluded at Guangdong Science Center on October 23th. In the first year of a new decade of CTSE and with the theme of "Safety for Joyful Childhood", CTSE is benefiting more people through a more innovative education model and a diversified platform. The closing ceremony for this year's event was attended by a host of BMW executives and local officials, including Mr. Liang Jian, Vice President of South Region, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd.; Mr. Wang Yuxue, Deputy Director of Guangdong Education Department; Mr. Zeng Jiangbei, Commissioner for Education Bureau of Panyu District of Guangzhou; Ms. Cai Cuilian, Sergeant of the 1st Traffic Police Squadron; Mr. Yang Xinbin, Senior Manager of Public Relations & Corporate Social Responsibility, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd.; Ms. Bi Suwen, Manager of South Region Communication, BMW China Automotive; and representatives from BMW Joy Homes in Guangzhou.

"Immediate attention needs to be given to educating children in road safety. Our aim is to teach children the skills to protect them from traffic accidents," Mr. Liang Jian said. "Moreover, we call on parents to participate in road traffic safety education because their skills and knowledge on this subject will have a great influence on children, and that is the reason why we have expanded the program to parents this year."

Since it was launched in 2005, BMW CTSE has been dedicated to spreading safety awareness to more people in a systematic, timely and efficient way. Besides the classic popular thematic learning programs, 2015 BMW CTSE has introduced a brand new Train the Trainer (TTT) program, aimed at training more professionals in traffic safety, so every parent has the opportunity to facilitate the spread of safety knowledge and thereby benefit more children and families. In order to give children in remote areas the same access to safety education, 2015 BMW CTSE brought a 3D safety-themed movie, "Adventure of AN’AN", to BMW Joy Homes in six cities – Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Shenyang, Hangzhou, and Guangzhou – offering the children there comprehensive safety education in an entertaining way. What's more, the BMW CTSE app was also upgraded to incorporate more safety education content and provide a broader and more diversified interactive educational platform for an enjoyable educational experience to an even wider audience.

BMW CTSE has been committed to developing children's awareness of traffic safety and strengthening their capacity to protect themselves from the day it was introduced in 2005. In the past 11 years, BMW has consistently maintained an open mind and listened to what children are saying in their hearts. This has provided a constant source of inspiration to develop new ideas and methods for safety education in China. So far, CTSE has been organized in 63 cities, and more than 390,000 Chinese children have benefited. BMW has cooperated with the Ministry of Education since 2010, promoting the BMW traffic safety textbook tailored to primary school students all over China. A total of 300,000 textbooks have been distributed so far. As a responsible corporate citizen, BMW has dedicated itself to creating a safe and orderly environment, practicing its long-term commitment to China.

Its dedication to social welfare relies on long-term persistence. Since entering China, BMW has not only firmly demonstrated its corporate social responsibility but also provided a role model for the whole auto industry. In 2007, BMW launched a series of corporate social responsibility activities, making it one of the first auto manufacturers to carry out these activities. In 2013, a new Corporate Citizenship strategy was launched with BMW promoting industry-leading CSR programs in three core areas: Resources, Intercultural Innovation and Social Inclusion, and Education.
