The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity.” Auroville is an interna- tional community with over 2000 people from around 40 different countries. Founded in 1968, Auroville is based on the vision of The Mother and is endorsed by UNESCO and the Government of India as an ongoing experiment in human unity. Aurovillians are constantly experimenting with new ideas and solutions in areas of education, arts & crafts, community building, new economy and sustainability. One of the unique aspects of research in Auroville is the fact that many ideas are put into practice. Over the years, Auroville has won international acclaim for its efforts in social and environ- mental sustainability. Auroville is located 8km from Pondicherry, 3 hours drive from Chennai city/airport (150km) along the scenic East Coast Road (ECR) and 8 hours by an AC sleeper bus from Bangalore (350km). ABOUT GREEN PRACTICES Auroville Green Practices aims to bring together various stakeholders to envision future townships that offer a habitat that is ecologically, socially and economically nurturing.
