Description: LEARNING COLLECTIVELY: THE AUROVILLE ECONOMY
*The Auroville Campus Initiative (ACI) is happy to invite you to Part 1 of the 'Joy of Learning Series' â The AV Learning Forum from Aurovilians for Aurovilians*
*What it is about:* 'Joy of Learning' will be a series of collective learning experiences addressing the wide range of themes associated with life in Auroville.
Economy, Town Development, Education, Governance, Outreach, Land Matters, We are surrounded by topics of great complexity that are of immediate concern for Auroville's current and future development. An advanced understanding of each area with its underlying principles and existing practices is indispensable to effectively respond to the manifold challenges we face and to explore new directions and opportunities in an informed, constructive, and collaborative manner.
In our current setting, we, Aurovilians, regularly âlearnâ when issues & conflicts have to be addressed and votes to be cast. In these situations, learning is often compromised by emotions and personal bias and quite often does not produce the desired result.
The 'Joy of Learning' series aspires to (re)familiarize the community with its very own habitat in a stimulating and respectful, yet thought provoking learning environment as a basis for exploring new options.
*How it works:* 'Joy of Learning' features Aurovilians well versed in their field of activity and those working on the frontline or behind the scenes who will share their knowledge and experience through engaging presentations and personal accounts. These sessions will be complemented by facilitated debates and, where applicable and desired, by activities.
*When? *We will kick-start the program on *Tuesday, September 2nd*, 4.30 to 6.00 pm
*Where?* SAIIER conference room
*Part 1 - THE AUROVILLE ECONOMY - are we different?*
*Who?* ACI is happy to present:
*Divya* on 'Unique Features of Auroville's Economy'
*Lyle* on 'The Financial Structure of Auroville'
*Suhasini* and *Chandresh* - joining the panel discussion & *Alan* as moderator
*Join us for part 1 of the 'Joy of Learning' series and equip yourself with sound knowledge on the economic practices, procedures, and features of our community - be entertained and inspired **AND* have some refreshments.
*Your ACI Team (Lalit, Michael H., Min)*
