As the main force of the rural eco-soft power construction, in addition to playing the government's role of macroeconomic regulation and governance function, corporate role of "self-discipline" and "law-regulation", attaching great importance to the ecological functions of the rapid development of farmers' cooperative organizations is highly needed that the concept of eco-soft power can be implemented among the rural businesses families and individuals.

INTRODUCTION

Eco-soft power is the sum of spiritual achievements that human beings follow the objective law of harmonious development of the human himself, nature, society, which will enable human society generating a fundamental shift. The eco-soft power construction does not only means abandoning the production of the materialism of the era and way of life in industrial civilization, stepping toward the sustainable development model of moderate consumption, but also means the transformation of ethical values, a transformation from only admitting mankind is the main force, human value and the total unification of humanity and ecology.
