They see the Green Belt as a tool to change how we live on this planet without destroying it and are suggesting to maintain ecological processes, to resolve the conflict between nature and culture and to include the population in and around Auroville into the process of development. The majority of the audience also welcomed the suggestion of an Aurovillian to ask a third party, a professional Tamil NGO, to facilitate this process with Aurovillians and the Tamil population of the villages.
