The mutual community / The mutual community idea

The mutual community
The mutual community

In 2015, China has 61.03 million rural left-behind children. Because their parents work in the city, they can’t feel love from parents, and have lots of problems of psychology, education. Meanwhile, china has 100 million empty nesters. Elderly living in the big city are well educated. But when they retire, their children are busy with work. The elderly often feel lonely.
We design a mutual community for the elderly and left-behind children. The left-behind children from village can be taken care, and the old man can be accompanied. The society can support and get contribution from the mutual community, what is a sustainable community.
