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 Radio has created a special web-link page for people who could not come to fund raising events. Click on the special web-link page below and you will have the links to give you immediate access to seven fund-raising events; three talks, three concerts, and an interview from the Unity Pavilion’s February fund-raising program.

What is the Low-Tech Lab?

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).

The Manifestation of the Art Dome

A conversational interview between Sankalpa: Art Journeys intern Marichelle Gurski (US) and architect Peter A. (German Aurovilian) on his philosophy behind creating the double-dome structure of the Sankalpa Art Center. Sankalpa is sub-unit of Thamarai, including the center located behind Tibetan Pavilion in the International Zone and the Art Cart parked at Visitor’s Center. Sankalpa provides the community with creative spaces for transformation of both inner and outer worlds, by breaking down the barriers that inhibit self-expression, making art accessible to all, and facilitating human unity through art.

This is an open dialogue about Peter’s journey to Auroville where he found a fascination with geodesic domes and their application in the community. We are given a rare glimpse into the wisdom of the stories he has to tell and how the structure of these domes bring people together.

Trashband play at Kalakendra

On Saturday 8th April The Trashband performed making sounds and rhythms only using everyday items we find in our garbage…… plastic and glass bottles, tin cans, rubber balloons and more. It was a very lively and humorous show with the underlying message to keep our world litter free.

Water

The Divine expresses itself in many ways….
water, in different forms, starting with a single drop, forming cascade in lotus pond, or a river stream; many droplets form a rain … and all leads into the ocean

Talking Thrash with ECOSERVICE

“Your 5 minutes of attention can save the planet 500 years of decomposition time, WASH YOUR PLASTICS BEFORE YOU THROW”
Auroville is full of Culture, Education and Celebration, one of the few places on earth where not only we deal with our waste consciously but can create ways to have fun with it. Auroville radio met up with Palani and Kali who took charge of Ecoservice Unit from January 2016, keeping Auroville ‘LitterFree’ every single day.
In this program Palani and Kali share with us real-time facts and figures from last year, speak about the recent Kottakrai clean up campaign, share with us various myth and truths about the Ecoservice, draw comparison with their peers from Pondicherry, Villupuram and Chennai and bring our awareness to various DO’s and DONT’s that we can follow in order to minimizing “Our Waste” ending up in landfill. The Ecoservice was segregating the community waste into 60 categories last year, have now upgraded their process and are capable of segregating the total waste collected into 82 categories. No one else does that. The unit is working relentlessly and is coming up with unique and creative solutions to tackle the challenges of waste management. One of the main tools they are employing is to stop waste at it’s source, by educating the community to make conscious choices in a way which will enable them to consume healthily and demand recyclable packaging for products. It can seem like just a job but what makes it successful is when your passion can make it into a challenge to do better. Encouraging the community to literally “talking thrash” to have a better future for all of us.
