Le Pavillon de France présente

« Le nid du vent : recherche dystopique » Une « en-quête » sur l'habiter, l'utopie et la dystopie Présentée par Julie Beauté, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris Comment habitons-nous la Terre ? Quelle place nous donnons-nous, êtres vivants, les un-e-s les autres, les un-e-s avec les autres ? Quelles tranches de vies partageons-nous ? Comment construisons-nous notre demeure dans le monde ? Comment nos vies se pelotonnent-elles pour faire tomber les frontières de nos identités ? C'est à ces questions que Julie, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris et actuellement volontaire à Auro-Orchard, tente de répondre. Elle partagera sa recherche en cours, en proposant de s'interroger sur la question de l'habiter, sur les notions d'utopie et de dystopie, sur les concepts de maison et de chez-soi – et leurs revers. Sortant des bibliothèques et s'implantant dans la terre et dans les romans (notamment de science-fiction), elle dressera l'esquisse d'une « philosophie de terrain » en train de se faire, pour tenter de comprendre comment les vies se mêlent, s'entrelacent et se confondent dans les replis du monde.

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.

Sophia's mission

Sophia is on a mission to treat every dog that she comes across in and around Auroville that is suffering from scabies or maggot wounds. It is her love for animals that drives her everyday to raise awareness about how the diseases are quite treatable. Usually, these diseases go unnoticed and the dog eventually dies.

While Sophia goes around trying to help raise awareness and treat such dogs on her own, anyone who is interested in joining her endeavour is more than welcome to contact her : +91 9566173799

GM on Learning Activities in AV

On the 29th May 2017 a general meeting was held at Unity Pavillion to discuss the guidelines for learning activities in Auroville. The main points were the implementation of tax and visa types and restrictions to those with a tourist status.

Rachel's Story

An Interview you must listen to. I met Rachel some weeks ago when she had just arrived in Auroville and immediately, I could not help but notice what a kind person she was. A few days ago, I decided to interview her knowing that she had traveled quite a bit and it may make for an interesting story. This story was however something I was not prepared for. In this interview, Rachel talks about her life and what kept her going in spite of what hardships came her way.

The ‘After-Meeting Interview’

Should we open Auroville's doors and allow people to find out for themselves if the 'city of dawn' is their community; or should we assume the responsibility to select candidates carefully? How can we avoid the Entry Service to be closed for such a long time? Do New Comers feel under scrutiny during the one year process? What can we do to involve more Tamil New Comers and Aurovillians to these meetings? Auroville Radio asks participants of the meeting to express their view.
