Yunhe Centre was created with a vision of finding a balance between economic development and ecological restoration in communities bordering preservation areas in China. With an approach to social entrepreneurship and innovative education, we believe a regenerative economy with all life at heart is possible.
The first Centre was established in Zhonglu, Danba, a traditional Gyalong Tibetan village in Sichuan. Located at the foot of Mt. Mo’erduo, a sacred Tibetan mountain, nature is our first and foremost teacher.
By embracing the holistic mind, body, and heart learning principles, we offer programs that cultivate eco-intelligence and equip youth with visions and skills to become future glocal leaders, change-makers, and better stewards of nature and culture. The meaning of Yunhe 雲合 in Chinese is "Gathering of clouds".
More than a school, Yunhe Centre is a communal space for both local communities and international artists, scholars, and social innovators who share the same passion for being friends with the Earth, and a vision for ecological civilization.
Our second centre will open in 2023 in Xiaojin County, famous for its high plateau rose fields and the Giant Panda habitat. A summer camp in Mt. Genie community in the form of a nomadic black yak tent is opening in 2023.
In place, without boundaries...
Learning is a life-long process, and it should be inclusive.
Yunhe Centre is building an integrated learning system that cultivates understanding and transformation for both inner and outer ecology, connects ancient wisdom with modern innovation, nurtures global and local leadership.
We welcome all to join us, either with a passion for learning from nature, connecting to the world, or exploring the inner self.
Our eco-learning centres are within communities at the interface between man and nature. There's no limitation to the forms of learning space, either on a navigating boat or within a back yak tent, surrounding sacred fires under the night sky.
Learning transcends space and time, beyond age and culture, rooted in place, in service of life.
