ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
One of China’s ten designated “tuluo clusters”, Hekeng village in Fujian is home to a unique and rare form of Hakka culture, heritage and architecture. However, after the UNESCO had deemed these clusters as world heritage sites, the publicity from the UNESCO title has resulted in many of these small villages to be turned into commercial tourism hubs. Fortunately, Hekeng village has been spared much of this over-commercialization and has benefitted from this status, especially in the form of architectural preservation. With the help of a Keru Team, Laojia老家 wants to help build upon these already existing cultural preservation initiatives by focusing more on the humanistic side of the Hakka people and its culture. 

This fall, our Keru Team will help Laojia老家 research and catalogue the cultural history and assets of Hekeng in an effort to promote sustainable development. In this project, students will learn about cultural preservation in the context of sustainable development and will work in teams to investigate several cultural aspects, historical sites and local traditions through participatory field research, observations and interviews with the local residents. Students will then work together to report, analyze and provide suggestions how Laojia老家 and local residents can work better together to help preserve their unique cultural touchpoints, as well as showcase to incoming tourists.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Zhonglu Township is a small Tibetan community located in Danba’s mountains, part of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, a community known as “A Thousand Stone Castle Kingdom” that until recently had limited contact with outside world. The expanse of this tourism hasn’t left Zhonglu untouched; in fact, Zhonglu has seen a large growth in tourists over the past 5-10 years. On the one hand, local people are excited by the prospect of new wealth and tourism as an additional source of income. But on the other hand, this increase in tourism have left traditional cultural activities by the wayside. Even in one example, local villagers knocked down a 500-years old watchtower in order to use the bricks to build a standardized guesthouse. Our local partner, the Yunhe Centre, aims to reducing the impact of unsustainable development and finding innovative ways to preserve the local culture. This year, Keru team will address the major issues of unfettered tourism and find creative solutions to better help preserve the local culture and traditions of the Tibetan people in Zhonglu.
TUITION INCLUDES
Tuition fee includes local transportation, meals, lodging, activity fee and mentor payment 
COLLABORATION WITH KERU

This Ecotourism Guide will help tourists better understand Zhonglu’s culture and traditions, while also encouraging them to be respectful and engaged.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
There's a big difference in quality of life and living conditions in cities compared to rural areas. When it comes to water, there's actually very little wastewater infrastructure in rural areas while the amount of wastewater produced in rural China is significant. To tackle this problem, Keru will lead a team of students to run a baseline survey about water use and quality in the local area and conduct research on the next steps to enact a water use and protection plan.
