Giant Panda Reserve Rose Economic Revitalization Plan

Design an eco-product for the rose industry in the villages around the buffer zone of the giant panda habitat!

The village of Jiarong—the Maoshui village, lies next to the giant panda habitat in the Hengduan Mountain, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Once, the villagers of Maoshui village lived by growing peas, potatoes, and corn. However, everything changed when wild rose broke into the world of the villagers of Maoshui village! In 2010, under the leadership of the village secretary, more than 3300 households got rid of poverty and became better off through the rose industry. The “Happy Maoshui • Community Foundation for Shared Care and Enrichment (CSCE)" was established in 2022.

Volunteers will learn the significance of ecological conservation for flora and fauna, explore a poverty alleviation case study "Little Gold Rose", design eco-products guided by mentors, inject innovation into the local rose industry, and tell the story of "roses and pandas".

"Volunteering + Research", exclusively designed by ASDAN China, is an academic growth model that combines research-oriented learning and voluntary service. We refer to the authoritative theory of education, admission requirements of universities, 10 years of project experience, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to design our programs. ASDAN "Volunteering + Research" Programs cover four categories: Teach for Rural Areas, Community Support, Wildlife & Environment Conservation, and Cultural Heritage Conservation. Volunteers will experience rich and unique service scenarios and learn from different topics of research workshops concerning real social problems. We aim to guide volunteers to discover problems, propose solutions and report to the public, improve volunteers' research learning ability, meet the requirements of volunteers' personal growth and further education, and enhance their sense of social responsibility.

When it comes to voluntary services, admission officers of universities think highly of sincerely caring about society and comprehensive qualities and skills, such as proposers of innovative solutions, leaders of public welfare projects, and the continuity and depth of voluntary services. 62.1% of colleges would like to see applicants show a record report reflecting the whole process of volunteering. The world's top universities emphasize community commitment with problem-solving ability. Every high school student needs volunteering service experience that combines public welfare emotion and social problem-solving ability.
