Collaborative Planing Session – Final Presentation with Suggestions

Collaborative Planning Session, with public Participatory Sessions came to an end after intensive 5 days of work, where many aurovilians (big part architects, members of working groups, members of International Zone, and others) and some of bio region participated.
The work was divided in groups, and they identified key themes – declining unity, relationship with bio region, growth target, fixed or evolving galaxy, economy, youth issues, skills shortage, mobility and community participation. Out of those for the conclusions were given some suggestions as a Way Forward – widening participation, water & green, holistic approach.
Although very intensive and broad workshop openly touched also “sore” spots with eager participants, and many ideas came forward with a hope that the work will continue with the same enthusiasm, leading to practical solutions, and participation in first sight of the community, bio region and youth.
