Active Participation for TDC

AV Council invited the community to a follow-up General Meeting on the re-visioning and re-structuring of the Town Planning and Development of Auroville.Following the last workshop held in beginning of May 2016, a group of Resource Persons have been working to put together a framework to present to the community.
Although they have not managed to prepare all the data, was still clear that we might go another round (or another loop) if the members of the community will not actively participate in the process of re-structuring of the planning body.

Is There a Housing Crisis in AV?

After months of research ARA core group invited the community to sharing yesterday at Unity Pavilion. After opening remarks we heard the report of the study group on the topic of housing, which has asked itself “Crisis, yes, but what crisis?
Close to hundred members of the community participated in the following part of work in groups to find either long or short term solution for housing crisis.
In the last part all ten groups shared their suggestions and proposals.
To that event continuation follows – maybe in next two weeks, and with a big hope of active participation, especially of those who are affected the most by the addressed topic.

Artist at Heart

An interview with Pierre Legrand about the new art piece coming up at Town Hall .
ACUR management team has asked Pierre to make the windows “visible” since there were some accidents with breaking glass, but in an Interview with Pierre we found out more than that.

Generosity and Gratitude for IYD

From Youth Link which has emerged in Retreat in March 2015, three active members visited us in the studio. After more than a year of their existence they have managed to set up their scope of work, focus of action – they are working on working opportunities of youth of AV and bioregion, searching for alternative and collective ways of housing, and trying to set up an efficient network for (higher) education. In that quest they do include people of other ages, and as they are saying support from all ways is huge (from AV alone they have between 80 to 90 mentors from other age groups).

Last year we celebrated for the first time an International Youth Day at Bahart Nivas.
This year IYD will be celebrated at Unity Pavilion on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th of August. For that occasion they are inviting all the youth from AV, bioregion, and others to come forward, and display their projects, art…..
The UN theme for this year “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Production and Consumption.” they have “auroviliazed”, and in that sense the focus of this year celebration will be on Generosity and Gratitude.

Planning Workshop (2 days)

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)
Workshop Objectives:

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 l’Avenir d’Auroville with an integral approach which takes into account all the facets of Auroville’s ideals and development, working together, transcending opinions and positions.
