Auroville value-based Town Planning and Development Workshop took place on 30th of April and 1st of May, from, 8:30 am to 5 pm
The workshop marks the 1st phase and is meant to build up energy, align our vision and values and prepare the ground for a further participatory process which includes the whole community. Auroville is conceived as an urban experiment that would address the work of the evolution of consciousness: a spiritual way of life while dealing with challenges posed by the economic, sociological and cultural factors of the region. (The Mother, 1970)
1. To generate a shared vision for planning as a true base for collaboration and initiating a participatory process for emerging from values into action
2. To find agreement around key issues with regard to Town Planning and Development in Auroville and how we can work together with integral vision and inclusiveness towards their realization.
3. To identify levels and stages of participation to put in place a process of a larger community participation in order to encourage and gather community input to Auroville planning.
4. By November, create a strong, vibrant and collaborative lAvenir dAuroville with an integral approach which takes into account all the facets of Aurovilles ideals and development, working together, transcending opinions and positions.
