The Mother and Welcoming Volunteers

In an interesting interview with Dominique from AVIS (see: we can hear what are the difficulties they face to accommodate the flow of volunteers coming to Auroville on regular bases. As it seems Auroville, although it welcomes all the volunteers from all over, is not properly prepared for them. Luckily here are people as Dominique at AVIS who are dedicating lots of their time and energy to make volunteers welcome, and their needs meet. At Savitri Bhavan today – on the anniversary of the Mother’s passing we can visit her chair from 9am to 6pm, and at 7pm we can see the film “The Mother – Darshan Photos”.

Throw it Away? Where is Away?

Today’s news features Andi interviewing B on the multifaceted topic of waste.Formerly un-recylable waste was dumped into a landfill, now no longer an option as that land is no longer part of Auroville. B addresses the current question surrounding throwing something away: just exactly where is ‘away?’ Part of the answer, as always, concerns the raising of our consciousness around what we think we need thereby generating waste.

65% of waste is pick up

In the series of seminars about sustainability presented by Living Routes and Auroville Green Center on 11th of November Ing-Marie and B were talking about waste. Lots have been done in last few years and awareness of ecology is rising, so in Auroville 65% of waste is pick up by Eco Service. But Eco Service itself is still facing many challenges – from inadequate infrastructure, insufficient funding, lack of strategy to work as a unit, and receive some funds from the city. Right now the most important, and urgent need is land because there’s no adequate landfill for the waste that it cannot be recycle or burn, and need to be land filled.
