The Low-Tech Lab meets Auroville

The Low-Tech Lab, an initiative of young ingenious inventors working together to meet basic needs of humanity in a creative sustainable and environmental friendly approach.
One of the main focuses of Low-Tech Lab is working on a global collaborative research program and open-source documentation.
Their next step is to locate a suitable common ground for these inventors and engineers to gather and work together. Could this common space be offered by Auroville?

UNITING FOR AUROVILLE'S LAND

UNITING FOR AUROVILLE’S LAND – HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE RADIO

Auroville Radio brings you quick access to some of the special events held at the Unity Pavilion during February to raise money for buying Auroville’s land. Mandakini, the original organizer of “Acres For Auroville” (A4A) and co-founder of its offshoot “Art For Land”, is a dedicated full-time all-around worker for these large-scale fund raising efforts. She shares the latest results of the A4A campaign and the aims and results of the Art for Land auction. Mandakini tells us about many of the beautiful donors and about different solidarity actions for the land. She also explains the principles followed to make sure that the money donated to buy Auroville’s land is never used for anything else. In this interview we feel Mandakini’s deep, sincere, commitment to Auroville’s growth, and we meet a beautiful soul, dedicated to serving the ideals of Auroville.

Auroville Economy Fundamentals

A new study group has been inspired, to brainstorm and create a resolute economy structure for Auroville of the future. Spearheading this endeavor is Jaya and Divyanshi, in collaboration with other team members. We have a tendency of approaching economy in a very logic frame of mind, based on financial rules and principles and tend to have rigid parameters, here we have a refreshing new approach to economy with spirituality at its base, guided by the principles of only The Mother, and fundamentals derived from interpretation of the Matri-Mandir gardens. Yes! the Matrimandir gardens is like a matrix in its own, gifted to us by the Mother and can bring enormous insights into designing of lifestyles and ecosystems, as Jaya elaborates in this interview. They propose, for an out-of-the-box solution is required to shape an economy, which should have no parallel in the world, as it should very well be like an invention, such is the theme set for Auroville. It is an interesting and thought provoking point-of-view where you have flowers, gardens, spirit and feelings as a vocabulary to design an economy which serves the people rather than an economy designed to enslave the talent and power humans can produce. This group has started off with small steps but with great intensity into research and problem solving methods, starting right from the micro level and building up the economy story.
Anyone listening to this interview and is related to Auroville economy must consider offering time and energy to this special group, determined to achieve The Mother’s Dream, “Money is no longer the sovereign lord of people”

Auro and Auroville

Yesterday’s interactive session on exploration of full scholarship opportunities for further study at Auro University in Surat, Gujarat, and possible exchange between Auro and Auroville schools, and projects alike, brought another possibility for our children who might wish to continue with their academic education.
The vision and mission of Auro University is based on the principles of Integral Education, and the ideals of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
The session was facilitated by Chali, Lalit, Gijs and Mike, with Anoop from Auro University also present. As part of the information sharing we were assured that all students from Auroville Schools, even those who are not graded or given a ‘recognized’ high school diploma, will have an equal opportunity to enroll in a chosen program

Violin in Jazz

Whilst no-one questions the position of the fiddler in any kind of folk band, the jazz violinist constantly has to justify himself in the face of sceptics who believe that they should stick to either Bach or barndances.

Talk about Eco Femme and Eco pro

Celia, a volunteer working with Eco Femme (started by two aurovilians and now carried on by 13 more people) talked about the initiative taken in the field of Sustainable Menstruation. She gave the details of how our recent sanitary pads (which are made of 90% plastic) usage is affecting the environment and how its going to affect in future as they cannot be decomposed atleast for hundreds of years. She talked about the products of Eco Femme, the usage of all of them and how they are sustainable as they do not contain plastics and can be reused. She explained the need to spread awareness in the field of menstruation and also asking people to be the Eco Femme ambassador to aware people about healthier menstrual practices and to help the initiative reach its goal.
It was followed by the talk of Dr. Lucas (of EcoPro) who works in the field of hygiene. He introduced the idea of Dry Toilets and talked about the importance of dry toilets, its usages, solid waste management and how the waste can be used in farming which will reduce the use of various chemicals. He also talked about EM (effective micro organisms) developed for farming, crop cultivation, improve quality of yields and later it was discovered that it can be used for waste water treatment and sanitation as it curbs smell and keep it clean. He had also faced various challenges in the way of carrying his idea forward but still continuing with it for better environment.
