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?

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.

A talk by Ribhu and Marc

During the Litter Free Auroville 2017 Ribhu (from Wasteless) and Marc (from Upclycling studio) gave a very inspiring talk explaining the current waste management systems in our country and how it is affecting the environment. It started with a movie ‘Trash to Treasure, about upcycling and recycling’. Then they talked about how it has become a need to change this system as soon as possible otherwise all of our lands are gonna be converted into a big dumpster. The talk was actively joined by many people.

Future Art Poetry by Celestine

Celestine is one of Auroville’s early artist pioneers in the field of re cycled art. Now she is focusing on what she calls “Road Art”. She is deeply passionate about this and has composed some beautiful poems on the subject. I went to visit her in her home to listen and record, so as to share these pearls, which are even more so relevant during our “Litter Free Auroville Campaign”.

Interview with Ok on Upcycling

Ok talks about how to make Auroville litter free by accumulating waste and using it innovatively. She talks about her workshop that involved making cushions out of plastic. In this interview Ok further talks about the idea behind Upcycling Studio, challenges faced and her aspirations.

International Meeting of WWTP

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.

about the play
As Vinu says “It is eternal story, but with a twist” Oncde Upona a River is a playful comedy with lots of music , touching the areas of relationships with a pull between Love and Passion.
