LFA2017 – 3R

Past Friday LFA2017 has successfully started, and Ribhu and Marc are talking about it.
As Ribhu says “a little campaign” of LFA or Litter Free Auroville 2017 is going on for next almost three weeks with the main purpose to engage the whole community on the topic of our trash. They are trying to center their efforts in the ways how to treat our garbage with the mission to come to the zero waste…
Wastless(educational part), Upcylcing Studio(take care of difficult waste stream) and Eco Service(picking our daily waste) are main players in those efforts, and they are trying to reach integral service, an approach to treat waste.
Marc and Ribhu founded their “heart” in garbage, and are passionately dealing with waste …. on the road of sustainability, which always starts with ourself, on daily basis.

Reduce Reuse Recycle
and sometimes also
Refuse

Sri Aurobindo The Synthesis of Yoga

Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we don’t listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They don’t fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.

At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That ‘something’ feels like an echo. It’s the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why it’s important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.

The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.

Affirmation of this week: Echoes from the soul give me insight to what I transmit and receive.

BCC presents Auroville accounts

The BCC has taken an initiative to hold open meeting with the members of the community, in their effort to make matters more simpler. The presentation speaks about the accounting performance for the year 2016-17 in comparison to the previous year, 2015-16.
The presentation was given jointly by members of Budget Cordination Commitee, BCC, which is a sub group of the FAMC, member from Human Resource Team, HRT, which is subgroup to BCC.
This is seen as a healthy move and generally in a good direction as during the presentation it was noticed, community members were able to share their grievances but also were able to seek relevant information, thus strengthening the notion of transparency of the systems.
Many suggestions were provided to the presenting group by the members attending the presentation which indicates such presentations act as a bridging instruments and should be encouraged. A major topic of the discussion was the status quo of maintenance and the policies surrounding it, a notion was passed around to have a study group formed which can formulate and help finalize maintenance policies which the community at large can comprehend and are in line with the ideals of Auroville.

CAT11: Progressive Economy

Economy is the topic everyone in Auroville is pondering on and has a reasonable idea on what is going wrong, but how to get it in line with the ideals of Auroville is the question?
How can the economy of our future be, progressive, inclusive and sustainable?
The Lotus group, represented by Micheal and Yves made a fantastic presentation in the last CAT’s get together. The presentation was structured, rehearsed and beautifully articulated. It was designed in a unique manner, so that all the content of the matter is properly presented and no clutter of opinions is created. All the questions regarding the presentation can be directed to the Lotus group for which they will answer on the Auronet. Anyone who has an opinion or wants an idea on economy must listen to this program and then participate in the series of round table discussions which will be organized by the group to formulate their final proposal which hopefully can be presented and later acted upon by the Community.
