Happy Summer Christmas

Youth Center Christmas Fair is one of the winter highlights in Auroville. All Auroville celebrated together with pizza and Indian food. It offered a big variety of activities for children.

NNF – Not Negative Feedback !

This is the biggest and most welcome event happening in Auroville.
During the years the slogan “Run for the joy of Running” became a tangible fact. Everibody is happy. Asking questions to members of the community, volunteers, runners you will get the same feedback: Beautifully organized. Beautiful place. Perfect. From my side I can say that is a pleasure to go around interviewing people who appreciates the efforts of the organizing team and Auroville as community.
The Auroville’s 8th Marathon was a success.

Auroville’s 8th Marathon

Its a pleasure to organize Auroville’s 8th Marathon.
This comes from Anand Prasad who along with Chandresh Patel are the minds and hands behind the event. The runners love the Auroville Marathon because it is not tied up with any sponsors trying to get some benefit. To make the event possible, more than 500 persons volunteer time for the project.

We, the Auroville Council, are holding an interactive General meeting to update you on our work and to listen to the communitys concerns and feedback. Together with our sharing, we have also invited the Chennai festival organizers to share a short presentation of their work with the community.
One of the main tasks of the Auroville Council today is find new members to join the Entry Service team. As you are aware, the Entry Service members are quite overloaded with their work and some of them have carried this responsibility for several years. There is an urgent need to find new committed members for the Entry Service. We, together with the Study Group and Entry Service, are organizing a workshop on this topic on the 31st of January 2015. We would like to share more information regarding this workshop in this GM.
