Why Eco-Village?

Why Children?

Why International?

As a certificated Eco-village and a member of GEN (Global Eco-village Network ), Sunshine Eco-village Network ( SEN ) has been building the first base in Xuling Hangzhou for 1.5 years as a Chinese local eco-village.


We focus on three essentials: lifestyle, ecology and life.


We practice how to build a real eco-village from four aspects of Ecology, Economy, Community and Culture under the EDE (Eco-village Design Education ) system of GEN and Gaia Education.


We combine Chinese traditional lifestyle wisdom and culture with the international eco-village building theory and try to find a good way to regenerate 100 eco-villages in China in future.


Following keywords are what we are doing here and why we are doing these:

Ecology

Organic farming and Natural food

Eco-friendly and Sustainable lifestyle

ESD ( Education for Sustainable Development )

Economy

Localized Economy

Happiness Economy

Sustainable Economy

Community

Sharing

 Responsibility

Mutual Learning

Culture

Chinese traditional culture including Taoism, Tea Art, Chin, Bow and Arrow Art, 

Traditional Chinese Medicine

International culture exchanging and communicating


We believe the Eco-village is one of the best solutions to practice global sustainable development.


ENOUGH! 


Above are all adults serious topics, what about We Children?

In Sunshine Eco-village, we have  10 children from 6 moths to 14 years old and we have a green school. When we are building our village, they are quite active and offered a lot of brilliant ideas and inspired us. From our sight, children have different eyes and words, they are more natural and direct to the essence of the world.


Watching this second generation for future eco-village, we cannot help asking: 


What kind of eco-village will be if it is built by children? 


We are really curious and would like to give it a try! We can give our children an opportunity to start their eco-village now.

 

For Peace and Love, 

so, 

International.


We call ourselves Sunshine International Eco-village and we do believe that global could be a village, better eco-village : ), we do received a lot of foreign families from both Europe and East Asia and shared a lot of wonderful moments together in our valley.


A fact we are facing is our children will not be living alone in our own country all the time. To learn more about other countries' culture or even languages become quite important for all our children. Another important reason is we will not fight with our friends or because of misunderstanding of each other’s culture, right? :)

 

So, 

if you and your family are living in China but was surrounded by your own culture environment, 

if you want your kids stay in a real Chinese village for a week ( or more ), 

if you are interested in all I said above, 

please contact me to apply to our International Children Eco-village Building Camping. 

There are only 10 members available for foreign children part.
