Auroville is an intentional community situated in South India, recognised by the Indian Government and UNESCO.

Auroville was born in 1968 as an experimental city and international project. It celebrated it's 50th anniversary in February 2018.

The first generation of ‘pioneers’ have built Auroville in aspiration of its unique Charter and guidance from the Mother (Mirra Alphassa) and Sri Aurobindo.


How YouthLink began



The Auroville Retreat was a large community process held in March 2015, with several months of work in advance preparation. The Vision Task Force, namely consisting of members from Auroville’s Governing Board, International Advisory Council and Working Committee initiated this process, inviting all Aurovilians to participate.

The process created space for the residents of the Auroville community to reflect on the themes of Growth, Economy, Town Planning, Bioregion, Education, Governance and Youth. The young adults participating in this retreat agreed to start an initiative together to help address the concerns regarding their own generation. And so YouthLink was born.

YouthLink is

A space for young adults to explore themselves and discover their offering for the world.

An opportunity to explore ‘community’ as a central theme for the evolution of humankind.

An invite to older mentors to share their wisdom with the future generations.

A bridge between Auroville, its bioreion, India and the world.


The Auroville Spirit


  1. Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But, to live in Auroville, one must be a willing servitor of the divine consciousness.

  2. Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.

  3. Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations.

  4. Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.
