‘Big city life’ is what most of young successful people strive for today. Moving to big cities like Shanghai is often seen as a recipe for success: build a career by speed of light, earn a lot of money and after few years of hectic and stressed life simply change your job. Life in the big cities is surely somehow comforting. Everything seems available at all times, quality social life, transportation, interactions that broaden our horizons, entertainment, convenient stores, bars, parks… It’s a never ending running around. We are slave of the city life time, always on-the-go, rarely stopping to self-reflect or to just have time to rest.

Why is living at the countryside so attractive to so many people? Is it organic food, unpolluted air, clean water, a different kind of high quality lifestyle? Did those individuals that Andy gives introduction to in his book gave up big city life for those reasons? Is Japanese counterculture movement of living in the countryside an alternative model for path forward more sustainable living? Is deciding to live in the countryside a big turning point that humanity will in the future strive for?


Join us for our 110th monthly sustainability forum on June 5th, also the World Environment Day, to engage in a public dialogue about our collective future. Will we thrive in cities or in the countryside? Could it really be that these individuals can show us a path which brings balance to both, our lives and the global ecosystem?

Note: Event will be in English.
