Chongming Island benefits from a magnificent setting, clean soil, beautiful farms, and adjacency to the vibrant center of Shanghai. Chongming Island can be a place of education, of ecology, of science — a place of close contact with nature and of intricate ties to global networks of ideas and resources. It can be a setting that reflects the highest ecological design standards: A GREEN ISLAND.
Chongming Island will rethink the divisions between art and industry, home and work. It will focus on new approaches to energy, communication, business, and transportation. On its foundation will also be new approaches to agriculture, aquaculture, and ecology. An exemplar of modern urban planning, Chongming Island will become a beacon to the world.
