Outreach – ACI

How does Auroville’s engagement in the bioregion affect the life of nearby villages? How does it affect our own life? Who is involved and how? What impact does it have or has it had? What are the perceptions of those living in neighboring villages of purpose and role of Auroville?…

These and many other questions that has been addressed yesterday at SAIIER at next Joy of Learning session on the theme of ‘Outreach’.

With our life so closely interwoven with the social and economic fabric of the local population and their traditions, customs, and practices, ‘Outreach’ activities have been at the very center of our efforts from the beginning. The progress we made, the challenges we face and the opportunities we have available to jointly move forward is a topic that concerns all of us.
