On Saturday the 18th of November 2017, at the Tibetan Pavilion, there was an information sharing meeting on the updated entry process.
The main focus of this session was to inform on the changes to the new entry process and the impact it will have on New Comers and Mentors.
One of the changes to the entry process is the launching of Yucca, a three days introduction to Auroville for people interested in applying as New Comers. The first session of Yucca will take place between the 23rd and the 25th of November.
The main topic of the meeting was the importance of the involvement of mentors, and it was discussed that more Aurovillians are urged to step forward and offer themselves as mentors.

GM for Entry Policy Final Draft

On the 26th August 2017 a general meeting was held at the Unity Pavillion to try to finalize the new draft for the Entry Policy. The main concerns seemed to be about the wording changes, which were Entry to Admission and Exit to Termination, which got resolved, and also what to do if the majority decide not to go ahead with the new policy, which also was resolved.

The ‘After-Meeting Interview’

Should we open Auroville’s doors and allow people to find out for themselves if the ‘city of dawn’ is their community; or should we assume the responsibility to select candidates carefully?
How can we avoid the Entry Service to be closed for such a long time?
Do New Comers feel under scrutiny during the one year process?
What can we do to involve more Tamil New Comers and Aurovillians to these meetings?

Auroville Radio asks participants of the meeting to express their view.

GM on Entry Process

A General Meeting was called by the Entry Serice Group in Collabration with ETG, for residents of Auroville. The agenda of the meeting was to revisit the new Entry Service Process to invite new comers to Auroville. A concern was raised recently when 60+ Aurovillians signed and submitted a petition to halt the new Entry Service Process, as they realise, its going too fast and were concerned about the future repercussions of encouraging a process without a thorough set of guidelines, which everyone in the meeting agreed, were not complete.
The Entry Service Group & ETG, on their part made presentations of all the facts and figures and were encouraging a dialogue which could lead to a mutual, practical solutions. The tension in the room was abnormally high, doubts were raised regarding the data provided by both the committees and several outburst were staged regarding the implementation of the process being approved by the RAS, earlier this year. The ETG has openly invited the residents of Auroville to come forward and participate in ratification of process, if so is required. The meeting ended on an abrupt note and general consensus that all the groups along with the residents need to do solid ground work, before moving forward in any direction.

Update of AV Council

Yesterday, Wednesday 31 of August 2016, the general meeting of Auroville Council with updates. They were talking on how to progress in Auroville questions, such as: Housing, new comers and justice……were in the center of preoccupation.

How to build the future? (short)

Accompanied by construction noises from a new concrete building site behind SAIIER, workers and supporters from Sacred Groves were discussing with opponents of the Sacred Groves project, skeptical Aurovillans and deputies from the Housing Board above big issues: How exactly should Auroville build its future?

Manu begins with an introduction about the importance of ecological construction and about the Sacred Groves housing project. The following discussion sets up all critical points about the project: It is supposed to take too long, to be too costly, and a couple of architects who are present dont believe the buildings to maintain stable into the monsoon. The questions are answered by the founders of Sacred Groves and its volunteers.

The music is taken from the German Combo “17 Hippies”.
