Proposal to restructure TDC

Therre was a general meeting held on Monday April 24 in Unity Pavilion which was a continuation of last months general meeting where the core group came up with fulfilling the task of restructuring Town Planning & Development Council (TDC)/L’Avenir d’Auroville. Last year, the Auroville council was asked to facilitate a process to restructure the TDC, the core group working on this comprised of Martin, Jesse, Sauro, Pashi, Shama, Suhasini, Mamta, Elvira, Lionel and Christiane. This meeting was a preparation for a Resident Assembly Decision-making Event (RAD) May 13 – June 10. The team proposed a revised structure of TDC and asked for the opinions of people present in the meeting on the same. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The feedbacks and comments for last month’s meeting were also shared. Involvement of youths was an important point in the discussion. Meeting ended up on a positive note.

How can we restructure the TDC ?

Presentation by the core group, selected to come up with ‘Terms of Reference’ which will further enable the Auroville Council, and the community on the whole in fulfilling this daunting task of re-structuring the Town Planning & Development Council (TDC). Last year, the Auroville council was asked to facilitate a process to restructure the TDC, the core group working on this comprised of Martin, Sauro, Pashi, Shama, Suhasini, Mamta, Elvira, Lionel and Christiane. The presentation was fully loaded with useful content and consist of guidelines through which restructuring of TDC could be accomplished. The depth of the content and the importance of this procedure saw the meeting going into overtime with only a few people ready to leave this discussion midway. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The group had invited a special artist to create infographics (www.weibkekodi.de) to help break down the heavy content and had created many posters and charts to help envision the key points in reference and the overall presentation was concise. But a point noted by Sauro was, “in the meeting too much time was used in discussing the organization and selection process rather than the content” but maybe that underscores the people’s intimate involvement and keen sense for details for restructuring of one of our most important working group, which will directly be responsible in shaping our future in Auroville.

Consciousness is a reality inherent in existence. It is there even when it is not active on the surface, but silent and immobile; it is there even when it is invisible on the surface, not reacting on outward things or sensible to them, but withdrawn and either active or inactive within; it is there even when it seems to us to be quite absent and the being to our view unconscious and inanimate.

I am concerned with the earth, not with worlds beyond for their own sake; it is a terrestrial realisation that I seek and not a flight to distant summits. All other yoga regard this life as an illusion or a passing phase; the supramental yoga alone regards it as a thing created by the Divine for a progressive manifestation and takes the fulfillment of the life and the body for its object.
Sri Aurobindo

Quarrels and clashes are a proof of the absence of the yogic poise and those who seriously wish
to do yoga must learn to grow out of these things.

Planning Workshop (2 days)

Auroville value-based Town Planning and Development Workshop took place on 30th of April and 1st of May, from, 8:30 am to 5 pm
The workshop marks the 1st phase and is meant to build up energy, align our vision and values and prepare the ground for a further participatory process which includes the whole community. “Auroville is conceived as an urban experiment that would address the work of the ‘evolution of consciousness’: a spiritual way of life while dealing with challenges posed by the economic, sociological and cultural factors of the region.” (The Mother, 1970)
Workshop Objectives:

1. To generate a shared vision for planning as a true base for collaboration and initiating a participatory process for emerging from values into action

2. To find agreement around key issues with regard to Town Planning and Development in Auroville and how we can work together with integral vision and inclusiveness towards their realization.

3. To identify levels and stages of participation to put in place a process of a larger community participation in order to encourage and gather community input to Auroville planning.

4. By November, create a strong, vibrant and collaborative l’Avenir d’Auroville with an integral approach which takes into account all the facets of Auroville’s ideals and development, working together, transcending opinions and positions.
