Sigrid and Jasmine share their stories of involvement in the Acres For Auroville (A4A) fund raising campaign, and their involvement in Green Acres – a project to which they are passionately, actively dedicated. They call it a sister campaign. Both of them acknowledge the importance of the Green Belt in the Master Plan of Auroville for the purpose of protecting and securing our natural resources, and to further develop the city as a real example of sustainability according to the Mother’s vision.
As they say; the Time is NOW! to purchase the remaining plots of the land which do not yet belong to Auroville. Private developers are actively endangering the integrity of the city with their speculative way of purchasing land and building exclusively to satisfy their own greed for profit.
More important, Sigrid and Jasmine see the collaborative fundraising campaigns of A4A and Green Acres as tools to bring people together, to work together, and to bring human unity.
For 7th of February of this year they are planning an interactive communicative event at the Unity Pavilion, which they call Landing Auroville. There will be movies and music, and things for people to see and do. Everyone is invited! The organizers see this gathering as a celebration of the sacredness of the land itself.
