In 2020, the Zigen Green Eco-Village program will be located in Sanlin Village, Yuyue Township, Deqing County, Zhejiang Province; Lushan Village and Dazheng Villages in Qiantong Township, Ninghai County, Zhejiang Province; Shanshenmiao Village, Zushan Township, Qinglong County, Hebei Province; Wudaoying Village and Henghe Villages in Fengning County, Hebei Province: a total of 6 villages in 2 provinces in China.
The village leaders in the selected 6 villages have participated in the “Revitalizing Village: Rural sustainable Leadership Training” Program organized by Zigen in November 2019. The development of this training has strengthened the village leaders' focus on human-centered and comprehensive development of the village under the framework of sustainable development, enabling the rural leaders to combine the training content with the sustainable development of their own villages and to take action in four areas: economic, social equity, environmental responsibility, and cultural diversity. The training especially supports the participation of left-behind women and returning youths in improving their hometown environment, preserving traditional culture, and taking care of the living needs of left-behind children and orphans.
Zigen will also launch a pilot program of green ecological primary schools or kindergartens in these villages at the same time, so as to promote village-school interaction and simultaneously create sustainable ecological green practices at the village and school levels.
