    rural happenings, 2010  ongoing

    For the first time ever in human history, 50% of human population is living in cities or urban centers. In traditionally rural China the emergency of this phenomena assumes the form of a high pace revolution, with an invasion of urban products to the countryside. The current governmental Five Year Plan placed several key issues to help the recently largely ignored rural areas and to elevate the conditions of farmers and rural population. The related risk is to turn upside down a whole rural culture overlapping new consumerist urban models on it.
