On November 1, 2022, the “A Date with China” international media group visited Yuli Future Community in Jiaxing, east China’s Zhejiang Province, its UFO-shaped construction greeting the visitors with a futuristic vibe. Yuli Future Community is among the second batch of the Future Community Project of Zhejiang Province, a project committed to modernizing the living conditions of its people and bringing about prosperity for all.
Located around the intersection of Yuxindai Street and Wuxing Road in Yuxin Town, Yuli Future Community was officially opened to public in January, 2022. Its one-stop service hall, which sits on the first and second floors of the building, features activity centers for children and the elderly as well as an Integrated Healthcare Organization equipped with intelligent facilities, providing a variety of healthcare services to the residents, including online doctor consultation.

On the third floor there is a cloud library. With sufficient daylight and a collection of more than 10000 books, the spacious library provides a fantastic place for reading and studying. Beside the library, the Eco-experience Center introduces its visitors to nine scenarios of future-oriented community. Kimberly Zhu, an American Professor at Wenzhou University, found the concept of zero-carbon kindergarten very impressive. “We are trying to teach our children today how to be living a carbon-free lifestyle, and this model is perfect, because they get to learn at a very young age, ” says Professor Zhu.
