Sustainable Users Concepts for China Engaging Scientific Scenarios
A Sino-European Study on Sustainability in 7 Chinese Settlements

EU 5th FP project ICA4-CT-2002-10007. 2002-2005

SUCCESS develops future scenarios for seven Chinese villages. It describes pathways into the future from the ecological, economic, socio-cultural and architectural point of view. What to maintain, and what to change in the villages: SUCCESS answers this question by combining the knowledge of the dwellers of the villages with scientific expertise.


What to maintain? What to change?
From proto-sustainable to contemporary sustainable village systems - this process supports an emergent future for Chinese rural settlements, respecting human needs combined with the needs of nature.


What to maintain?
Proto-Sustainability is the leading hypothesis for the SUCCESS-Case studies. The selected Chinese settlements have consistent social systems that allow them to consider community as a basis for a common identity and to organize themselves in a proto-sustainable way. This proto-sustainable socio-economic system has very little waste and many regenerative systems (from the usage of soil and clay for the housing construction to the usage of human manure in the agriculture). The project will show and examine the hypothesis that this ecological system together with a local exchange economy, solid social coherence and adapted built environment give the idea of a proto-sustainable performance. SUCCESS will figure out how these qualities can be maintained.


What to change?
We will build and examine scenarios of how to maintain the highly ecological and socio-cultural level of existing rural structures, and at the same time introducing the necessary upgrading of the living conditions. These results will be put at the disposition of the village leaders, the policy-makers in town development and in the building sector who are participants in this project. The whole process of the project ranges from integrated analysis to future scenarios of sustainable pathways, concentrating on 4 modules: ecology, economy, socio-cultural patterns and upgrading the built environment.
