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?
What is the Low-Tech Lab? Is it another business brand using trends such as sustainable and environment friendly to sell a product, or is this an innovative movement that wants to change the approach to global development?
Considering key words such as do it yourself, local manufacturing, low environmental impact, economic, repairable, and for all, how sustainable and environment friendly are some innovative inventions such as solar panels?
While working on technical solutions, how much do we ease our impact on the environment? Has Low-Tech Lab considered focusing on educating people to be more in tunes with nature?
A brief interview with Clement and Camille from Low-Tech Lab, and Mitia from Joy of Impermanence (Auroville).
Monday 6th March we’ve recorded the debate on Auroville’s Waste Water Treatment Plant International Meeting. This was the first time that waste water was handled collectively (for Residential Zones 1&2) instead of at the community level. The Town Developing Council shared information about the WWTP, including the route of the sewer lines, the dewat/vortex technology used at the plant how the purified water will be returned, about the laying of the pipes and the management plan of the WWTP. The TDC tryied to answer to concerns and questions the audience asked while we felt a certain amount of excitement in the hall.

Varuna is shining bright like the sun, so to speak. A Genaral Meeting was organized by Varuna and TDC to discuss the revised site application for the Solar Plant, it has proposed for Auroville. The meeting was packed with people from Auroville, obviously demonstrating the magnitude of this project. The Solar Power Plant, which proposes to take care of the electrical needs of the entire community for 50,000 future inhabitants of Auroville, had come across a kind of road block regarding the location of the site it had been allocated earlier. The matter was pending and was needed to be addressed by the residents along with the groups involved. In the spirit of Auroville, where mutual respect is above personal ambition, the Varuna team, made ingenious amendments and by the end of their presentation, the general feeling was that they have found out a way to keep the balance in opinions and integrity of their project intact. Much kudos to Varuna for envisioning such a remarkable project along with the state of the art desalination plant and the uphill power storage project all of which are discussed in detail in the presentation. Very soon Varuna can expect list of recommendation for site application from TDC after which it will follow its general procedure and will be posted in the News&Notes for mandatory two weeks notice and if all goes well, finally commence work on this new land for the project. All we can say is, let the force be with you.

Eureka! Mankind has crossed yet another milestone in sustainable energy and all credit due to Solarus Solar.
A company set out to revolutionize the world with their patented innovative technology, which not only gives comparatively four times the solar output but is the only unique product in the market which can heat your water at the same time as producing electricity. We met with the Mr Leen Zevenbergen, CEO of Solarus Solar, who is here in Auroville doing their first ever installation in India. This historic accomplishment was made possible by enormous efforts and good will from Auroville Consulting and Sunlit Unit from Auroville.
It is very impressive to hear from Leen the core values on which this technology and his company is operating from, it goes to strengthen the ideology of clean energy and clean values.
The company was given a prestigious award ‘Accenture Innovation Award’ and were granted membership to the social stock exchange of London.
More details and contact info is available from their website www.solarus.com. Also joining the conversation are Nagarsammi, their representative in India and Jeron, who is working with Auroville Consulting.
At the Unity Pavillion, on the 19 December 2016, CAT (Create Auroville Together) brought together a collaborative space for innovating a new economic paradigm to help manifest the Dream.
After the initial presentation, the atmosphere became quite heavy with Aurovillians and Guests strongly voicing their negative feedback, at this point the recorder strangely crashed and upto that point the audio was lost …… But later after the small groups of Guests, Volunteers, New Comers and Aurovillians had sat together sharing visions and ideas the atmosphere changed and a feeling of hope arose into the space ….. listen to what they had to say……. the Divine speaks through many mouths.
