Dear Kosha ：
I just watched the eco-village online forum. The speeches of Wen Tiejun triggered me
some feelings and thoughts. As a standard-bearer of agriculture and China's industrial transformation, he participated in the discussions about lifestyles, which in itself made me wonder.
I think the world still has some way to go to know and understand China's exposing of lifestyles.
The following is my diary today. I hope these words will help you to understand better.
The term “共识社区（Read：Kung Shih She Chu” was coined by me in 2010 and has been widely used by many translators in China to summarize a series of concepts such as Eco-village, co-housing, intentional community, etc.But up to now, there is no exact translation in English. Similarly, there is intentional community. Let's translate it into Another Community for the time being.
The reasons for the need for human transmission are: to respect all kinds of collective life formed by common recognition, that is, to respect diversification, that is, to respect everyone himself. The one who can not choose the lifestyle of “Another Community” ，he could let more people know the word“Another Community” .People's understanding of it is not the focus of our work. We have to answer people`s questions. But first of all, we should let more people know“Another Community” . Knowing that such a pluralistic future is possible. One day, when he is ready to join the “Another Community”, he will naturally join. I believe that life will help people understand the meaning of“Another Community”. This is not my concern. What we need to do is let more people know.
Knowing the word “Another Community” is like knowing the words "peace" and "love", which itself has an impact on life.
All kinds of common views can form a living group, which means that all kinds of understanding can be recognized. And time has proved in numerous times that the sustainable common view is immaterial, and the new civilization will show that people will no longer be formed because of the interests and material needs, but because the inner core recombines with each other and the real spiritual needs of the world. Because of interest, ideas, habits, and aesthetics, the form of society is reorganized.
This is why more people need to know the term “Another Community”.
I independently published my book 《Independent life way》 on a self-sufficient lifestyle in 2018.

The attached document is a preface by friend Erik for the book.
We shot the documentary "The Road to Consensus" in 2015, which was a visit to eight consensual communities in Europe.

The purpose of sending this information to you is to try to move towards union.I don't know what the real impact will be, but I know we'll be on the road to finding the answer.We have contacts with some organizations that are engaged in community exploration in China, but they often focus on economic issues or training projects. I think what we need is real life.
Fortunately, I was nominated twice for the United Nations Equator Award and once for the Young Earth Guard Award. But these awards have not been as expected to inform more people about the 共识社区（Another Community）.
I hope some international information and activities can let me know.
Happy new year.
