After the meeting of Action Groups which came out of Retreat 2015 on 29th the whole group felt that is time to change things. Today we will be holding together a collective space of silence, we will be holding collective space in silence ...... ....we will be receiving inspirations as individual members of collective aspiration....

Youth Initiative

Yesterday afternoon the conference room at SAIER building in Town Hall complex was packed with all well wishers and some youth who responded to the invitation of the current Youth Representative team to a special event. In past few months before the Auroville Retreat they have formed team which was looking at the concerns of youth through various activities in the community. Yesterday they presented what they have gathered and discovered so far, and their aims in coming months which will involve youth more actively in the development of the community. They hope that more concerned youth will join them, and they remain open for all those who wish to participate, support or mentor their efforts.

From the Auroville Council:

"Dear community members,
We have received some feedback from some members in the community that they did not receive the
massmail from RAS with the possibility of giving feedback. They have over 1500 people in their list already and are looking into why some have been missed out. Kindly write to to add yourself into the mailing list for the future.

In addition to the RAS
massmail, the Auroville Council made an announcement in the N&N and Auronet 3 weeks ago with the documents of the new Entry Policy requesting feedback directly to the We had also said that if you are not a computer user, our secretary will print a copy out for you.

We take this opportunity to warmly welcome everyone to the GM this afternoon at 4:30 pm in Unity Pavilion on the same topic. Dinner afterward at Le Zephyr!

General meeting on NDTA

In a meeting attended by some 106 Aurovilians the arguments and reservations for the NDTA proposal are made.
General Meeting on the NTDA (New Town Development Authority), a proposed local (Tamil Nadu) planning body that would have a legal power to propose and approve developments in the Auroville Master Plan area according to the Master Plan.
The creation of the NTDA for Auroville has been proposed by Auroville Foundation and TDC to the State Government as a measure to protect Auroville's land against the growing number of encroachments.

Following this meeting, the RAS observed that some participants expressed an interest in the exploration of alternative solutions to an NTDA.
During the meeting we were also given to understand that the NTDA proposal is already in an advanced stage. Hence we propose to use the momentum of this meeting to try to arrive at practical proposals as soon as possible.
The RAS now invites and encourages anyone with a proposal on how to protect and secure Auroville's land to communicate it to the RAS.
