"A harmonious collective aspiration can change the course of circumstances.”
The Auroville Retreat was a two day workshop-like session held on the 12th and 13th March 2015 at the Unity Pavilion, facilitated by Aromar Revi. It was attended by representatives, interested community members and youth to present the work that had been com plied for the various themes of Economy, TownPlanning, Growth, Governance, BioRegion, Education and Youth prior to the retreat. These presentations were then reflected upon as a community, defining further goals and milestones to support each theme.
About 10 youth had got together to compile ideas gathered at the Festival of Ideas that was held at the Youth Centre earlier in February 2015. Youth presented on the issues of Housing, Employment and Education, being the central concerns in regards to the youth-topic. This was a first step where the youth shared their appreciation for the amazing amount of energy and dedication that our grandparents and parents have put into building Auroville. The youth requested some space for youth to be integrated, as the next generation, to help build the city for the future.
