Anji Yucun belongs to Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province, which is named after Yuling, located in the remaining vein of Tianmu Mountain with an area of 4.86 square kilometers. Though small, it is famous. As the birthplace for “Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets”, Yucun pursues sustainable development featuring ecological beauty, industrial prosperity and richness over the ten years, being a valuable sample for construction of China’s ecological civilization.
Yucun combines eco-agriculture with tourism, transforms abandoned mines and cement plants into tourist areas, superposes bamboo, white tea and tourism to create characteristic agricultural products, and turns farms into characteristic farmhouses and homestays. As the first village selected as the “Best Tourism Village” by the United Nations World Tourism Organization, it received 700,000 tourists in 2022.
Yucun founded China’s first “zero-carbon village”. The trendy building “Yucun Impression” transformed from a chemical plant was completed. Being a veritable zero-carbon building, it relies on renewable energy photovoltaic power generation system for carbon offset.
Ecological priority and green development are reshaping people’s production and life. In July 2022, “Yucun Global Partner Program” was launched, inviting global talents to jointly build Yucun and broaden green development.
Broadening the transformation channel from “lucid waters and lush mountains” to “invaluable assets”, Yucun collaborates with 24 administrative villages in three surrounding towns for construction of “Great Yucun”, generating a blueprint for 100,000 square meters of entrepreneurial space, over 20,000 square meters of factories, nearly 60,000 mu of bamboo forests and farmland.
Yucun, with the right green development road, has a collective economic income of 13.05 million yuan in 2022, with a per capita net income of 64,000 yuan, and over 8 million yuan of operational income.
