Zhoushan, a livable island city

Updated : 2018-12-15 (ezhejiang.gov.cn)

As a beautiful island city in East China's Zhejiang province, Zhoushan boasts clear water, sandy beaches, delicious seafood, Buddhist culture and clean air, and has ranked among the top three of 74 major cities around China for its good air quality for many years.

It has improved the local infrastructure, public services and city environment in recent years, with parks and gardens seen ubiquitously, schools and hospitals greatly renovated, and civil activities enriched, making itself a better place to live in.

Putuo district in Zhoushan was selected as one of the ten happiest county-level cities in China in 2018 by Oriental Outlook magazine's annual ranking.

Founded in 1958, Zhejiang Ocean University (ZJOU) is situated in the urban area of Zhoushan Archipelago New Area which is the first State-level new area with the marine economy as a focal point. For about sixty years, following the principle of "Embracing Diversity and Pursuing Excellence", ZJOU has become a leading provincial institution of higher learning specializing in ocean science studies.

"勇立潮头、海纳百川、同舟共济、求真务实"的舟山精神,既是舟山自古以来人文精神的沉淀和积累,更是改革开放四十年来舟山顺应海洋文化的文脉,发展、革新、创造的属于这座城市独有的新文化。

近年来,舟山市坚持践行"绿水青山就是金山银山"的发展理念,围绕宜居、幸福的民生向往,加快海上花园城市建设,人居环境有效改善,群众幸福指数不断攀升。

今年普陀被选为"2018中国最具幸福感城市(县级)"。全民健身中心、普陀大剧院、中小学校、医院等一大批基础设施建设完工。一个现代化的海滨新城犹如一颗灿烂的东方明珠,在莲花洋畔闪闪发光,成为海上花园会客厅打造中不可或缺的一部分。

浙江海洋大学是一所国家海洋局与浙江省人民政府共建的教学研究型大学。学校创建于1958年,现有新城校区和定海校区2个校区,其中,主校区新城校区位于浙江舟山群岛新区长峙岛,枕山环海,风景宜人,是求学的理想之地。
