How might we
ecologically revitalize rural life
in Zixi Qingliangshan?
EXPLORING ZIXI QINGLIANGSHAN
Young generation is moving to the city for education or work, sending money to build new houses for parents.
The older generation is left behind in the rural area, being lonely and isolated.
The entire area is bereft of kids, as there are no schools in the area. They go to the cities with their parents.
There are good mixed-use streets, but inadequate public transport. People use private vehicles. Public infrastructure is abandoned.
