Disussion of the group (Photographer: Kim)Jean Francois who held the last weeks presentations and discussions about “collective intelligence” built the bridge between our own individual being and the collective in a special manner on a one day workshop. He started off in introducing a couple of profound questions which firstly every individual had to answer for oneself and afterward were discussed in small groups. He guided the group into a self-created market place. It finally lead to the request if there is an alternate currency possible in Auroville. Read more

The Creation of the Aura
by Rebecca   
Tuesday, 13 March 2012
Aura image (Photographer: B)On January 1, 2012, the Aura was introduced to Auroville. The Aura, not quite a currency, but more of a symbol of exchange, was created to expand Aurovillian's ideas of ways to deal with money. I took some time to speak with B about the emergence of a symbol of exchange that is a wholly Aurovillian concept, and the question of how money is handled in Auroville. The Aura is made out of waste paper, printed at the Auroville press, and embellished with the well-known symbols of Auroville.

Anandi (Photographer: Alex)En este programa Anandi nos cuenta el proyecto del New Pour Tous, un mercado cooperativa que trabaja para generar un nuevo tejido económico sustentable, que surgió de una iniciativa popular para traer nuevas maneras de consumir. Comenzó a funcionar hace 4 anos y hoy hay mas de 600 participantes que mensualmente contribuyen con una cantidad fija de dinero a un pote común, y de allí se hacen las compras del mes. Cada uno es responsable por controlar su consumo y asegurarse que todos puedan ser beneficiados. Un muy interesante y innovador proyecto!
