Meisha Carbon-Neutral Community, located in Meisha Subdistrict in the eastern part of Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, is known as a popular tourist destination and an ideal living environment across the globe. In 2021, guided by local authorities, Vanke Foundation, in collaboration with over a dozen partners, started to explore a low-carbon, eco-friendly lifestyle, encouraging active efforts in building a paradigm of the carbon-neutral community. Building on low-carbon technologies such as kitchen waste processing by black soldier flies, Meisha combines the community’s biodiversity conservation efforts with low-carbon development, initially giving shape to a carbon-neutral community. In 2021, Meisha Community was selected as one of the first pilot projects for building net-zero carbon emission communities in Shenzhen. In Shenzhen’s 14th Five-Year Plan for Addressing Climate Change, the Community is listed as a major demonstration project for carbon neutrality, making it a key part of the city’s climate change mitigation efforts. We have also shared our practices through international platforms, including the UN Climate Change Conference and the UN Biodiversity Conference.
