For years now, millions of people have been abandoning rural villages and small towns in favor of China's wealthy, job-filled megacities—but it's a dream that seems to have passed its prime. Young people are tired of elbowing their way up the ladder, and they're disillusioned with late-stage capitalism's material obsession. They want a more fulfilling life where they get to decide what they value rather than having to navigate other people’s values. They want to live in harmony with nature, free of societal pressures and expectations, and they want to become self-sufficient.

“Another Community” is a rural commune in China that is building a way of life very different from a homogeneous, narrow-minded system, and it is welcoming anyone who wants to do the same. Click through to see the inner workings of this ambitious project.
