In order to see the best we can build; answers need to be mandated from the residents of the community Read more

Jesse, trying to moderate the best he can, coming up with elaborate schedule of presentations with Q&A sessions afterward, but overthrown due the fact that most participants wanted to follow the discussion from two week back.

Fish Bowl (Photographer: web)Yesterday's facilitated exchange organized by RAS at Unity Pavilion started with umbrella question - What question, if that question would be answered, would a neighbor ask as a community to agree on a shared way forward, and how to plan and build Auroville City? - which was meant to invite more questions, and not so much solutions and answers. Whole exchange was in a form of Fish Bowl Dialogue, which brought faster, and lighter dynamic to the meeting itself. One previous one was clear that community needs more to just talking to each other. Read more

Informations and sharing meeting at SAWCHU (Photographer: Barbara)Present team of L'Avenir d'Auroville/TDC shared yesterday at SAWCHU with the community detailed report on their work for the last two years.

After the review was an opening question/answer sharing part of the meeting, which brought on the surface many issues. The mandate of present team is about to end, but common observation of the community is that at least part of it should stay on the job. Read more
