Main insights.
- Increasing local economy giving new jobs opportunities will solve the migration problem from the countryside to the city.

Systemic design approach.
System design is prima­rily a different model of econom­ics that activates, in a strictly local context, a network of relationships to transform the output of a pro­duction system into a resource (input) to another: a virtuous collabora­tion between production processes (agricul­tural and industrial) and the system of natu­ral realms, the local context and community.
Thinking for connections becomes the only viable solution in order to solve the problem of environmental load, we suggested new uses of materials,new forms of energy generation, thus developing a new economic model and flexible multipolar, involving multiple actors in the village of Xian Qiao, region of Shuxin Town and extensible in the future whole island.
